Far Niente Winery is located in Oakville, an area famous for Napa Valley Cabernet, and has been producing Cabernets since 1982. This wine is their 2017 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, a blend of 88.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 3.5% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc aged 16 months in French oak 60% new. This wine combines select vineyards in Rutherford, Calistoga and St. Helena that complement the fruit from their Oakville estate vineyards. It shows luscious aromas of blackberry and cherry pie, cassis, sweet anise with hints of lightly toasted oak. A silky and smooth mouthfeel with flavors of berry fruit, toasty vanilla, and hints of dark chocolate. Lively acid and beautifully polished tannins bring a long, lush finish.

This memorable Cabernet Sauvignon has small amounts of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Malbec blended in. Aged 17 months in a majority of new French oak, it unfurls flavors of red fruit, dried herb and clove over a core of youthful tannin and spicy oak. Best from 2028-2038.

Composed of 93.3% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3.8% Petit Verdot, 2.3% Cabernet Franc, 0.5% Merlot and 0.1% Malbec, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley was aged for 17 months in French oak, 65% new. 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 has a real skip in its step, featuring bright, crunchy black and red fruits and a soft texture, finishing lively.

This has good energy, with a brambly spine driving plum and black currant fruit along while a solid bolt of iron runs underneath. Savory and bay accents hang in the background throughout. Best from 2021 through 2031. 19,535 cases made.
