Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Powerful and expansive, the 2014 Martin Stelling Vineyard Cabernet has all the exceptional qualities that we associate with this iconic vineyard. Blackberry and cassis harmonize with flavors of melted chocolate, vanilla and ground spice. French oak adds warmth and texture to the midpalate. Classically elegant with beautiful structure and complexity, the wine’s silky tannins marry with the oak, creating rich layers that continue into a long and seductive finish.
Vineyard Notes
The 57-acre Martin Stelling Vineyard is located at the base of the western hills in Oakville, and is the primary vineyard for Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon. Nickel & Nickel is fortunate to farm two acres of this vineyard. The soils are composed of deep volcanic loam with underlying clay and gravel.
