Experience craftsmanship at its most masterful. Made from the finest blocks of our Martin Stelling Vineyard and aged in hand-selected French oak barrels, our legendary Oakville estate-bottled Cabernet Sauvignon displays classic elegance upon release … and continues to thrill the palate over time.
Powerful, Cellar Worthy and Highly Allocated. Don't miss it.
Generous aromas of blackberry, chocolate covered cherries and espresso give way to a full midpalate filled with black cherry and berry flavors, accented by dusky dark cocoa and toffee notes. Fine-grained tannins offer structure from start to end, with a velvety finish layered with ripe, lingering black fruit flavors.
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.
