Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2007 Stelling Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has layers of berry flavors in the nose. Blackberry, black cherry, cassis and other flavors seem to meld into each other and then re-emerge. The flavors seem to follow the nose, in that each berry is apparent and then folds into the next layer only to present itself again. These layers build across the palate so that the texture seems rich and chewy before the tannins melt away to a juicy finish.
Vineyard Notes
The Martin Stelling Vineyard is located at the base of the western hills in Oakville and is the primary vineyard for Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon. Nickel & Nickel is fortunate to farm two acres of this vineyard. The soils are composed of deep volcanic loam with underlying clay and gravel.
