Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright mixed berry and black cherry fruit with notes of floral, cedar and tobacco round out the aromas. The full entry leads to a broad palate focused on dark, berry fruit and supported by juicy oak, evolving to a chewy finish with firm, mouthwatering tannins. (Tasted January 2014)
Vineyard Notes
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.
