Silky fresh with aromatic black cherry with a hint of cedar. Has a long decadent finish. This is not a big boisterous cab but it is delicate with fruit yet finishes strong from the oaky structure.

aromas of very dark fruit, black currant, dark chocolate. a definate earthiness, but the sweetness of vanillan and the perfume are multilayered, full. Silkiness is the best way to describe the finish.... wonderful with grilled red meat. A delight!

loads of varying berry fruit combined with dark cocoa, lovely tannic structure balanced with the proper amount of acidity, all around yummy!

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon comes across as a touch rough around the edges. There is good depth to the dark varietal fruit, but today the wine's angular contours make it hard for the wine to be as expressive as it could, or frankly should be, conside...

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. The 2007 was a huge success in Napa Valley and this vintage is a blend of 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Cabernet Franc and 2% Petie Verdot age 16 months in 70% new French oak. Robert Parker scored it 93 points saying "The finest Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted from Far Niente may be the 2007 Estate. Its dense purple color is accompanied by fragrant aromatics of creme de cassis, spice box, underbrush, and forest floor. Voluptuously-textured and full-bodied with superb purity and depth as well as a layered, complete finish, this terrific wine should be drinkable before the 2006, but age just as long 20-25+ years." Limited!
