Far Niente Winery Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 (1500ml)

Rare Magnums of Far Niente 2013 Cabernet now available - limited!previous vintage 94+ Points Robert Parker: "A great effort from Far Niente in this truly magnificent vintage, with its similarities to 2002, the Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon has a dense purple color, plenty of structure and aging potential, and an impressive inner core of sweet crème de cassis fruit, licorice and background vanilla. This wine is still very much an infant in its evolution, and should keep for 20-30 years. Many 2012s are excessively generous, open-knit and fleshy, but this is holding a lot back. And wow, it is “locked and loaded.” I wouldn’t be surprised to see this wine increase in score in about 5-10 years, and actually merit an even higher score. Bravo!"The 2013 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon presents dusty chocolate and black cherry aromas layered with subtle floral notes and oak. The entry is velvety and intense, revealing dark cherry and boysenberry notes married with toasted oak and light licorice. This is an elegantly structured wine with silkiness through the midpalate and a persistent, juicy finish. Deep, coating Oakville tannins ensure that this wine will age beautifully in the cellar.

For the vintage and pedigree it underperforms. Still a good wine.

Reliably good. Can't decide if this 2013 is better than the 2012.

A much more approachable style. Showing classic Napa and Oakville characteristics. More fruit forward then I remembered, but showing some depth and complexity. Will be great to see how it ages.

Expected a bit more from a 2013, but drinking well right now. Nice fruit and earthiness.
