Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2008 Far Niente Chardonnay greets with aromas of ripe melon, fig and peach. A creamy and smooth entry leads to a rich midpalate, layered with ripe tropical fruit and toasted hazelnuts. The finish is long and mouthwatering with well-integrated toast and spice.
Vineyard Notes
Far Niente Chardonnay is a blend of superlative Napa Valley vineyards, many of which are located in a little-known area called Coombsville, a cool growing region nestled in the rolling countryside and protected by the hills east of the city of Napa. Coombsville offers the characteristic climate of Carneros, with less wind, along with deeper, well-drained gravelly loam and volcanic ash soils. The combination of these spectacular vineyards results in the subtle, tropical flavors, complex aromas and uncommon richness that we have long associated with Far Niente Chardonnay.
