Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon Cave Collection United States California Napa County Napa Valley Red 2006
Since the first vintage of Chardonnay in 1979 and the introduction of Cabernet Sauvignon in 1982, Far Niente has held true to its philosophy of producing estate wines with a consistent house style. While many wineries make wine at several different quality levels, Far Niente produces one Chardonnay and one Cabernet Sauvignon of the highest quality possible from their estate vineyards; if the wine doesn’t meet expectations, it doesn’t make the final blend. The twenty-plus years of resounding success as a highly regarded Napa Valley winery is attributed to their pursuit of these exacting standards and commitment to quality without compromise. This 2007 Cabernet, from a highly anticipated vintage, offers intense aromas of blackberry and boysenberry along with sweet licorice and perfume. A sweet and silky entry is followed by a velvety midpalate, rich with layers of ripe purple fruit and cassis. Well-integrated and melting tannins lead to a long and juicy finish, allowing enjoyment now, or cellar to savor later.

95 Points - Wine Enthusiast "One for the cellar. Shows a dramatic structure of firm, dusty tannins, brightened with acidity, framing complex, long and deep flavors of black currants, cassis, dark unsweetened chocolate, smoky cedar, anise and spices, undergirded by a firm minerality. Best after 2010 and through 2014, at least."
Sleek and complex, full-bodied and Bordeaux-like, with an earthy mineral edge to the dried berry and currant flavors that are subdued and tightly wound, ending with earthy tannins. Needs time. Best from 2011 through 2017. 12,200 cases made. -JL
