Wine Enthusiast Top 100
Celebrate your grandest occasions with this elegantly etched bottle of our legendary Far Niente Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon. Crafted from the finest blocks of our Martin Stelling Vineyard and aged in hand-selected French oak barrels, this Oakville jewel displays classic elegance upon release … and continues to thrill the palate over time.
Aromas of mixed berry, chocolate, light earth and licorice. A thick entry, with mixed berry flavors, lush and structured midpalate with great backbone of coating, ageable tannin. Full and mouthwatering with flavors of plum, blackberry all the way through to the end. Layers of toasted sweet oak are well integrated, adding structure and support to the ripe fruit flavors.
Nicely restrained, like luxe dark chocolate, this well-balanced and brooding wine shows Far Niente at the top of its game, wrapping fine-grained tannins around superb cassis, black cherry, and blueberry flavors that will expand and gain complexity with time.Jim Gordon, Wine Enthusiast
