Coming from the Oakville area of Napa Valley, this dense powerhouse of a wine has a focused core of pure cassis fruit, with blackcurrant and black cherry flavors at the periphery. Lush tannins and balanced acidity make this a wine to drink today or cellar for 5-10 years.

Bright with ripe, purple fruits, this wine will impress with complex, layered aromas of black licorice and briar patch. The silky entry progresses along the palate and gives way to dense, velvety chocolate and toast. Full-bodied and concentrated throughout, the wine lingers on with a long, layered finish.

Due in June 6th! Reserve Yours Today! Far Niente owns an estate vineyard in Oakville; the very heart of Napa Valley. Oakville is where many of Napa’s best wines are from, and of course this one of them. Their 100 acre Martin Stelling Vineyard with its gravelly soils produces densely flavored Cabernet. 94% Cabernet Sauvignon is seasoned with 3% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petite Verdot. Aged 16 months in French oak barrels, 73% new, this is a big full-bodied Killer Cab. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 95 points saying “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.” Be sure to decant at least an hour. Very Limited!!

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

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
