A blend of 89% Cab Sauv, 6% Merlot, 3% Petite Verdot & 2% Cab Franc, from Martin Stelling Vineyard, planted on gravelly loam soil, aged 17 mos in French oak, 68% new. Dark Ruby with aromas of black and dried red fruits, toasty herbs and earthiness. On the palate blackberry, black cherry and cassis with vanilla, cacao and espresso. Well balanced, fine tannins, a touch of toasty oak carrying this wine to a long finish, and room to age. Tasting Sample!

Most recent vintage, second bottle 6 months on from the first. Young but already impressive. Not surprisingly, I’d expect this to age well.

New vintage from Far Niente does not disappoint. Full body, dry, tiny bit of acidity. Blackberries, vanilla and leather. Nice!
