Winemaker Notes

Beautiful aromas of blackberry and boysenberry pie, cassis, licorice, and sweet anise, pair gorgeously with hints of lightly toasted oak. A silky entry transitions to a very smooth midpalate with flavors of mixed berry fruit, lightly toasted oak, and sweet licorice. Well-structured and polished, this wine is filled with juicy acid and fine grain tannins that melt into a long mouthwatering finish.

89% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc.

COMMENTARY: One of the hallmarks of the upper crust, high-level Cabernet is balance and style. The 2017 Far Niente Napa Cabernet Sauvignon—the winery's first under this AVA moniker—does an excellent job in fulfilling this role. TASTING NOTES: This wine is swimmingly fine. Its aromas and flavors of ripe fruit and warm spices should pair it beautifully with a nicely grilled ribeye. (Tasted: May 31, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

One of the most prestigious wines of the world capable of great power and grace, Napa Valley Cabernet is a leading force in the world of fine, famous, collectible red wine. Today the Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without the other. But it wasn’t until the 1970s that this marriage came to light; sudden international recognition rained upon Napa with the victory of the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars 1973 Cabernet Sauvignon in the 1976 Judgement of Paris.

Cabernet Sauvignon undoubtedly dominates Napa Valley today, covering half of the land under vine, commanding the highest prices per ton and earning the most critical acclaim. Cabernet Sauvignon’s structure, acidity, capacity to thrive in multiple environs and ability to express nuances of vintage make it perfect for Napa Valley where incredible soil and geographical diversity are found and the climate is perfect for grape growing. Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that express specific characteristics based on situation, slope and soil—as a perfect example, Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
