17 months in French oak (69% new, 31% once-used)
Dark purple and black cherry aromas with hints of tobacco and dried flowers give way to classic bottle bouquet. The silky, soft entry leads to flavors of black cherry fruit, beautifully structured through the midpalate with finely grained, melting tannins. (Tasted January 2014)
The 100-acre Martin Stelling Vineyard, located behind the winery in Oakville,
is the cornerstone of Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon. Planted on some of the most
beautiful, gravelly loam soil in the Napa Valley, the vineyard uniformly produces
wines with supple tannins, bright, forward fruit, and beautiful tannin structure.
