Beautiful aromas of blackberry and boysenberry pie, cassis, licorice and sweet anise, pair gorgeously with hints of lightly toasted oak. A silky entry transitions to a very smooth midpalate with flavors of mixed berry fruit, light toasted oak, and sweet licorice. Well-structured and polished, this wine is filled with juicy acid and fine grain tannins that melt into a long mouthwatering finish.
The 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.
