The 2016 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon opens with beautifully lifted spice and black fruit aromatics-clove, anise, black cherry and blackberry-layered with a hint of rich oak. A round, supple entry leads to a silky, smooth midpalate. Cassis, clove, and toasted oak complement the black and red fruit flavors. Fine-grained, age-worthy tannins provide structure to the dark, juicy finish.

Wine AdvocateA blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot, the very deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled prances out of the glass with gorgeous black cherries, molten chocolate, licorice and warm cassis scents plus underlying notions of candied violets, cigar box and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate possesses great elegance and bags of poise with wonderfully ripe, plush tannins framing the perfumed black fruits, finishing very long and layered.

Wine EnthusiastSourced from the Martin Stelling Vineyard behind the winery, this is classic Napa and a gorgeous celebration of the variety. Blended with 3% Petit Verdot, it offers notes of red fruit, turned earth, graphite and anise, with a light toasting of oak to balance. It finishes lush and succulent in feel.

Wine SpectatorSolidly built, with a well of cassis and dark plum fruit forming the core, featuring mouthwatering mineral, savory, tobacco and menthol streaks throughout. Delivers weight and freshness. Best from 2020 through 2030. 9,217 cases made.
