Full-bodied and concentrated when it was first released, the 2006 vintage continues to captivate with purple fruit and cocoa powder aromas, elegant berry flavors and the softest hints of lavender and tobacco.
October 20-31, 2006
16 months in French oak (73% new, 27% once-used)
Bright with ripe, purple fruits, this wine will impress with complex, layered aromas of
black licorice and briar patch. The silky entry progresses along the palate and gives way
to dense, velvety chocolate and toast. Full-bodied and concentrated throughout, the wine
lingers on with a long, layered finish.
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.
