2019 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley
Winemaker’s Note - An elegant perfume of mixed berries, baking spice, dried lavender and thyme open onto a full palate layered with expansive mixed berry, black tea, toasted oak and spice flavors. Focused and fresh, fine grained tannins support the wine throughout, while the finish is silky, long and lifted.
Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc
Wine Enthusiast - "With a slight nose of reduction, this wine offers grippy tannin and sizable oak. Blueberry, currant, cedar and sage give it an elegance and classic structure of understated power, finishing in notes of tobacco and clove. Enjoy from 2029–2039. Cellar Selection"
James Suckling - "Aromas of dark plums, black olives, bark, dried herbs and cloves. Medium-to full-bodied with powdery tannins. Rich and creamy with chocolate and black fruit on the palate. Chewy finish with excellent length. Fresh. Drink from 2023."
Wilfred Wong - "The 2019 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon is a class act showcasing the Napa Valley at its best. This wine expresses aromas and flavors of black fruit, fragrant spices, licorice, and a suggestion of oak. Pair it with a crown roast of lamb. "
