Winemaker's Notes

The 2007 Stelling Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has layers of berry flavors in the nose. Blackberry, black cherry, cassis and other flavors seem to meld into each other and then re-emerge. The flavors seem to follow the nose, in that each berry is apparent and then folds into the next layer only to present itself again. These layers build across the palate so that the texture seems rich and chewy before the tannins melt away to a juicy finish.

Critical Acclaim

"The Cabernet Sauvignon Martin Stelling Vineyard has always been one of the cornerstones of the Far Niente cabernets. The dense purple-colored 2007 reveals an exceptionally poised nose of graphite, black currants, blackberries and subtle oak. It appears to be the most concentrated and richest of all these wines, which is saying something given the intensity level they all possess. Powerful as well as restrained and noble, this is a classic Napa Cabernet Sauvignon to drink over the next three decades or more.
95 Points

"While the dark-toned fruit is round and supple, this wine's structure holds it tight and firm; a juicy cherry flavor lasts with a fine tobacco scent. A pure Napa Valley cabernet, this grows in a prime hillside block at Far Niente's vineyard on the benchlands of western Oakville."

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
