The 2013 Martin Stelling Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a stunning wine. Once
poured, ripe fruit aromas command the room. True to this Oakville site, this
wine has flavors of blackberry, cassis, oak spice and vanilla. Rich and seductive,
warmth is expressed from start to finish with juicy fruit flavors and polished
tannins. This wine is limited and our only regret is that we won’t have enough for
everybody to enjoy.
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.
