  • A refined, smooth, silky Cabernet Sauvignon with elegant notes of berried fruit layered with spice, black tea and toasted oak through to a long and lifted finish. An elegant bouquet of mixed berries, spice, dried lavender, and thyme opens onto a full palate layered with expansive mixed berries, black tea, toasted oak, and spice flavours. Focused and fresh, with fine-grained tannins and a silky, long, lifted finish. Rain during the early part of the growing season increased disease pressure in the vineyard, however, the summer warmed up and the threat dried up. The weather provided excellent conditions for the 2019 harvest in California. The summer was relatively mild and warm, with the warm, dry weather continuing into the autumn and creating perfect conditions for harvest. Overall, yields were slightly lower than the 2018 bumper crop, but the fruit created beautifully balanced wines with bright expression. 

The grapes were carefully selected and each variety was vinified separately. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts and an average of 12 days of skin contact took place to ensure the desired levels of extraction of colour, flavour and fine tannins. The blend was aged for 17 months in French oak, of which 65% was new and 35% was second fill.

Winery

The fruit comes from carefully selected vineyards across the Napa Valley in Calistoga, Oak Knoll, St Helena, Stags Leap, Diamond Mountain and Yountville, which complements the grapes from the Far Niente estate vineyards in Oakville. The Napa Valley is one of the most geologically diverse wine regions in the world, with each vineyard bringing its own characteristics to the blend. The Far Niente Oakville vineyard is planted on gravelly loam soil, which uniformly produces wines with supple tannins, bright, vibrant fruit and fine tannin structure. The combination of influences from the San Pablo Bay and the hills of the North Coast Ranges creates Napa Valley distinguishing mesoclimate. The bay generates a distinctive morning fog, which is channelled across the valley by the hills, bringing with it cooling influences. The fog clears with the warming afternoon sun and returns with the cool nights. This mesoclimate promotes a long, slow growing season, where the fruit reaches wonderful flavour concentration balanced by natural freshness from the retained acidity in the grapes.
