Product Description

The 2016 Far Niente Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is sourced from the Martin Stelling Vineyard which is located behind the winery in Oakville, is the cornerstone of Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon. Beautiful aromas of blackberry and boysenberry pie, cassis, licorice and sweet anise, pair gorgeously with hints of lightly toasted oak. The silky entry transitions to a very smooth mid-palate with flavors of mixed berry fruit, light toasted oak, and sweet licorice. Well-structured and polished, this wine is filled with juicy acid and fine grain tannins that melt into a long mouthwatering finish.

Varietal Composition: 97 Cabernet Sauvignon, 3 Petit Verdot
Appellation: Oakville AVA, Napa Valley
Aging: 17 months in French oak, 71 percent new, 29 percent once-used

97+ Points - Wine Advocate
"A blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot, the very deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled prances out of the glass with gorgeous black cherries, molten chocolate, licorice and warm cassis scents plus underlying notions of candied violets, cigar box and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate possesses great elegance and bags of poise with wonderfully ripe, plush tannins framing the perfumed black fruits, finishing very long and layered." -LPB, 10/29/18

92 Points - Vinous
"Far Niente's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled is soft, fruity and inviting, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Succulent black cherry, espresso, mocha, new leather, cloves and menthol build in a creamy, resonant Cabernet Sauvignon. This plump, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for the next 15 years or more." -AG, Dec/2018
