New release                                                                       One of Napa Valley's most collectable Cabernets, order the fantastic new Far Niente 2017 Oakville Cabernet. Limited. 92 Points Robert Parker: "The 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled is blended 95.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.25% Petit Verdot and .25% Malbec. Deep purple-black colored, it has pronounced black currant pastilles, black cherry compote and red currant preserves notes with touches of dried herbs, unsmoked cigars and fallen leaves plus a waft of cedar. Medium to full-bodied, it has a firm texture of grainy tannins and oodles of freshness supporting the muscular black fruit, finishing with an herbal lift." 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.

Most recent vintage, second bottle 6 months on from the first. Young but already impressive. Not surprisingly, I’d expect this to age well.

New vintage from Far Niente does not disappoint. Full body, dry, tiny bit of acidity. Blackberries, vanilla and leather. Nice!
