Aged in optimal conditions, this elegant vintage is fragrant and layered, with the most velvety midpalate.
October 18 - 27, 2010
16 months in French oak (76% new, 24% once-used)
The 2010 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon opens with boysenberry aromas
combined with rich, toasted oak and a hint of espresso. The entry is layered
and juicy with a velvety midpalate. Round, coating tannins and cherry fruit
lead to a lingering and youthful 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.
