Description

The 2015 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.

91 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - One of the iconic wineries of Napa Valley, this blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec has produced a relatively restrained and elegant 2015, with pure crème de cassis fruit, some incense, licorice and subtle background barrique. It is medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin, plenty of charm, and a relatively velvety smooth finish with well-integrated tannins and wood. This is approachable now and should continue to evolve nicely for 15-20 years.

90 Points Antonio Galloni, Vinous - The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Far Niente Estate Bottled is an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next few years. Wild cherry, smoke, tobacco, licorice and dark spices give the wine much of its considerable appeal. This is a very pretty, mid-weight Cabernet Sauvignon from Far Niente.

90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, 3% Cabernet Franc, 2% Malbec
