Tasting notes - Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon opens with beautifully lifted spice and black fruit aromatics of clove, anise, back cherry and blackberry, layered with a hint of rich oak. A round, supple entry leads to a silky smooth mid palate. Cassis, clove and toasted oak complement the back and red fruit flavours with fine grained, age-worthy tannins providing structure to the dark, juicy finish.

A beautifully balanced and elegant wine with textured blackcurrant and dark plum fruit and complementing cedar oak, long and full of silky finesse.

Producer Note

Far Niente, one of the earliest stone wineries, derives its name from the Italian phrase "Dolce Far Niente" (how sweet it is to do nothing). It was founded in 1885 and flourished until prohibition. Abandoned for over 60 years, the winery was purchased in 1979 by Gil Nickel. He started the long process of restoring it. Far Niente's quest to produce outstanding wines of distinctive character has led them to a philosophy that requires vineyard ownership. Today, they own 200 acres (3 different vineyard sites) of what many regard as some of the finest vineyard land in the Napa Valley.

Vineyard

The 100 acre Martin Stelling Vineyard, located behind the winery in Oakville, is the cornerstone of Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon. Planted on some of the most beautiful, gravelly loam soil in the Napa Valley, the vineyard uniformly produces wines with supple tannins, bright, forward fruit, and beautiful tannin structure.

Winemaking

Hand sorting in the winery maximised the ability to select the very best fruit from the harvest. On average, the wine had 15 days skin contact to extract the desired levels of colour, fruit and fine tannin extraction. Once fermentation was completed, the wine was aged for 17 months in French oak, of which 72% was new and 28% had been used once.

Tasting Note

Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon opens with beautifully lifted spice and black fruit aromatics of clove, anise, back cherry and blackberry, layered with a hint of rich oak. A round, supple entry leads to a silky smooth mid palate. Cassis, clove and toasted oak complement the back and red fruit flavours with fine grained, ageworthy tannins providing structure to the dark, juicy finish.

Serving Suggestion

Ideal with a tender fillet steak or a flavoursome beef stew.
