Winemaker's Notes

Aromas of very dark fruit, black currant, dark chocolate, dust/earth, vanillan and perfume are layered behind the ripeness. The wine provides a big and full entry, yet the tannins are balanced and have any underlying silkiness. On the palate, ripe cassis and spice mingle with well-integrated oak and evolve into a lingering fruit-driven finish.

Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Petit Verdot, 4% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

"Far Niente has produced a tannic, drily astringent young wine that’s nowhere near ready to drink. It’s tough as nails, with a gritty astringency that locks down the black currant and dark, unsweetened chocolate flavors. Cellar Selection."

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.
