Food Pairings for Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled
Far Niente's Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon combines noble vineyards in Oakville with the passion and commitment to making the very best wine possible. It is these natural and human factors in the winemaking process which define the quality of a fine wine, resulting in the recognizable Far Niente style. After extensive tasting of the fruit, each vineyard block is separately hand harvested. The fruit is again hand sorted at the winery. The determining weeks of fermentation and maceration dominate the winery as they reveal the potential of the vintage. After pressing, the blend is carefully assembled - each lot is tasted on its own, and its role is analyzed in forming the final blend. The young wine will age for 18-20 months in 75% to 100% new French oak barrels. During this time, rackings are carried out every three months to remove the clear wine from its sediment. After a full year in the barrel, a gentle fining with egg whites further softens and clarifies the wine. The result is classically structured Cabernets that are soft in texture, rich in flavor, complex and long. The wine displays the typical cassis and blackberry notes along with spicy oak aromas that have become synonymous with the Far Niente 'house style.' Time enhances the flavors and nurtures the bottle bouquet, offering elegance, and earning Far Niente the reputation for creating age-worthy wines.
