Our finest interpretation of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, this new Cabernet marries fruit from select St. Helena, Rutherford and Calistoga vineyards with our home vineyard in Oakville. This wine is like silk on the palate, with a dark cherry core and fine-grained tannins that make it smooth and mouthwatering.

Tasting Notes
Aromas of boysenberry and dark cherry with bright floral accents and subtle toasted oak rise from the glass. Silky upon entry, lush boysenberry and cherry flavors fill the palate, along with hints of dusty earth, spice and oak. The tannins are smooth and refined, and the finish long and juicy.
Vineyard Notes
The wine combines select vineyards in Rutherford, Calistoga and St. Helena that complement our home in Oakville and embody our long-established house style. Cabernet has been a hallmark of Far Niente’s winemaking program beginning with its very first vintage in 1982. The marriage of these diverse vineyard sites has allowed us to craft our finest expression of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine exemplifies our nearly four decades of mastery in growing and making Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
