Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Napa Valley

Tasting Note

Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon opens with boysenberry aromas combined with rich, toasted oak and a hint of espresso. The entry is layered and juicy with a velvety mid-palate. Round, coating tannins and cherry fruit lead to a lingering and youthful finish.

Producer Note

Far Niente, one of the earliest stone wineries, derives its name from the Italian phrase "Dolce Far Niente" (how sweet it is to do nothing). It was founded in 1885 and flourished until prohibition. Abandoned for over 60 years, the winery was purchased in 1979 by Gil Nickel. He started the long process of restoring it. Far Niente's quest to produce outstanding wines of distinctive character has led them to a philosophy that requires vineyard ownership. Today, they own 200 acres (3 different vineyard sites) of what many regard as some of the finest vineyard land in the Napa Valley.

Winemaking

Hand sorting in the winery maximised the ability to select the best fruit from the harvest. On average the wine had 14 days skin contact. Aged for 17 months in French oak 77% new, 23% once-used.

Serving Suggestion

Ideal with fillet steak or hearty beef stew.
