A wine that is only just coming into its own, the 2009 Far Niente Cave Collection Cabernet Sauvignon is full and structured, with thick tannins and juicy red fruit that shows potential for extended aging.
October 6-25, 2009
16 months in French oak (79% new, 21% once-used)
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)
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.
