Tasted alongside the 2004 release. This was much earthier, the fruit is more muted. Similar to the 2004, in hat this one had super mellow tannins. Slightly less minerality? A fantastically smooth finish with soft tannins

Well-built if a bit lean, with spice, mineral, herb, olive and currant flavors shaded by light oak. Well-focused, this aims for elegance and restraint at the expense of riper, fuller or oakier flavors... Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1999 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

The 1999 Cabernet displays substantial cassis and dark blackberry aromas that are mirrored on the palate with the extra density and depth that come from an excellent vintage and low vineyard production. The lush ripeness marries particularly well with the toasty char of the French oak. This wine has all the layers and structure typical of Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon.

Winemaker's Notes:

Vineyard Notes: Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon is grown primarily in our estate Stelling Vineyard, located behind the winery in Oakville. This 100-acre vineyard produces wines that exhibit the cassis, blackberry and "dusty" components typical of wines grown in the soils of western Oakville. Harvest Notes: This magnificent vintage began with a cool spring and wonderfully moderate growing season, which contributed to a late start to the harvest. The crop was small due to the ripening conditions during bud formation and flowering. However, the extra hang time allowed the grapes ample opportunity to fully ripen and develop concentrated flavors. Tasting Notes: The 1999 Cabernet displays substantial cassis and dark blackberry aromas that are mirrored on the palate with the extra density and depth that come from an excellent vintage and low vineyard production. The lush ripeness marries particularly well with the toasty char of the French oak. This wine has all the layers and structure typical of Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon. Appellation: Napa Valley Harvest Dates: 9/17 – 10/27/99 Varietals: 78% Cabernet Sauvignon 21% Merlot 1% Cabernet Franc Skin Contact: up to 41 days Aging: 18 months in French oak (80% new) Fermentation: Typical for red wine Release Date: September 1, 2002 Cases Produced: 12,345 cases
