Fantastic Bottle. Notes of Black Cherry with a Vanilla Oak Finish. Soft tannins gives a nice, but not overbearing, leathery mouthfeel.

Deep ruby red. Interesting nose to begin with some forest floor, a touch burnt, sweet spices and black fruits. A touch dusty on the palate, with lots of red cherries, spices and a touch dark too. Heavy tannins (7.5/10), and full bodied with a long finish. Drink from 2019 till 2031.

Beautiful nose of; ripe blackberries, blueberries, boysenberries, black cherry cola/licorice, vanilla, dark moist soil with fresh violets and red florals. Nice round, lush mouthfeel. Powdery, soft, dry tannins. Fruits of; ripe blackberries, dark cherries, plum & blue fruits. Moist dark soil, dry crush rocks, new leather, bramble, vanilla, wood shavings, good acidity and a good round finish in progress. This wine shows better young than many of the others I posted tonight. Try it again in 8 years for more complexity. Photo tour of the estate, barrel room, Winemaker Nicole Marchesi and one of the many owners rooms of classic cars.

Enjoyable tasting event with Far Niente wines tonight. I've had a few Nickel & Nickel, but never any of Far Niente's own wines. Too young! But what a treat. I can see this going up a few points once its had time to develop. Aromatic in a big way...blackberries, blueberries and spice on the nose. Cedar, smoked meat, toasted oak, blueberries on the palate and a nice lingering finish.

This was a gorgeous bottle that exuded notes of ripe blueberries and plums, sachets of dried spices such as clove and star anise, all intermingled with cooling menthol and fresh mocha froth.

Black cherry, cinnamon. Medium plus body and tannin. A little spicy. Primo with New Yorks off the grill.

Blackberry and cherry on the nose. Oak and vanilla come through. Tannins softened up and med acidity. Drinking very well right now, very smooth and easy.
