When translated from an Italian phrase, ‘Far Niente’ romantically means ‘without a care’. We hope you recapture that essence as you take a behind-the-scenes peek at Far Niente and the fine Cabernet and Chardonnay we produce here in Oakville.

Tasting Notes: 1996 Far Niente Cave Collection Cabernet

Categores: Far Niente Cabernet, Far Niente Cave Collection

Winekmaker Nicole Marchesi recently tasted the 1996 Far Niente Cave Collection Cabernet Sauvignon and shares how the wine has evolved over the years.  

The subtle blackberry, cassis and cedar aromas of this wine's youth have developed into a classic bottle bouquet of dried cherry and perfume. Soft and layered upon release, the texture has become even silkier with delicate tannis and mouthwatering acidity on the finish. Classically structured and ready to enjoy now!
