The 2017 Far Niente Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, the blend is 89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, and 2% Cabernet Franc. It was aged in French oak of which 60% was new and 40% was once-used for 16 months. The wine combines select vineyards in Rutherford, Calistoga, and St. Helena that complement our home in Oakville and embody our long-established house style. This wine exemplifies our nearly four decades of mastery in growing and making Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.
Lifted aromas of boysenberry and dark cherry with bright floral notes and hints of sweet toasted oak that jump from the glass at the very first swirl. A silky and lush entry with boysenberry and cherry flavors, light hint of dusty earth and spiced oak, refined and smooth tannins for a long juicy finish.
Our finest interpretation of Far Niente Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, this new Cabernet marries fruit from select St. Helena, Rutherford and Calistoga vineyards with our home vineyard in Oakville. This wine is like silk on the palate, with a dark cherry core and fine-grained tannins that make it smooth and mouthwatering.
Aromas of boysenberry and dark cherry with bright floral accents and subtle toasted oak rise from the glass. Silky upon entry, lush boysenberry and cherry flavors fill the palate, along with hints of dusty earth, spice, and oak. The tannins are smooth and refined, and the finish long and juicy.
Medium to deep garnet-purple in color, it rolls effortlessly out of the glass with notes of stewed plums, warm cassis, and black raspberries with touches of pencil shavings, dried Provence herbs, and tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate.
