A decade after it went into bottle, this stunning single-vineyard Cabernet shows beautiful depth, with mixed berry flavors, notes of baking spice and cassis and rich, velvety tannins. 

Tasting Notes
This 2008 Martin Stelling Cabernet Sauvignon has layers of blackberry, black cherry and cassis, which harmonize with undertones of chocolate and spice. This wine is fleshy with a dark, dense core that expands on the middle palate. The tannins are supple and rich and, combined with the oak, highlight the beautiful fruit medley in a lingering 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.
