Far Niente Cabernet 2014
Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon is grown primarily on the estate Stelling Vineyard, located behind the winery in Oakville next to Harlan Estate. This 100-acre vineyard produces wines that exhibit the cassis, blackberry and "dusty" components typical of wines grown in the soils of western Oakville and Napa Valley's finest Cabernets.
Intense aromas of ripe blackberry and boysenberry layered with baking spices and licorice. The entry is full and juicy with a velvety middle palate. Dark mocha flavors emerge on the long finish with chewy, coating tannins. 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot and 4% Cabernet Franc from the historic estate vineyards, mostly from the Stelling Vineyard and aged in 70% new French oak barrels for 17 months.
