The 2018 Far Niente is sourced from vineyards in Oakville as well as Rutherford, Calistoga and Saint Helena and is composed of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon with the remaining parts Cabernet Franc, Petit Vedot, Merlot and Malbec. The wine itself begins with aromas of blackberries, cassis and dark cherries, tilled earth, spices, herbs and fresh cut florals. Palate is medium to full-bodied, refined and seamless, structured with gorgeous velvety tannins that make for a gorgeous mouthfeel. The core of red and dark fruits are framed by an iron mineral edge that persists through the finish. Overall, this is a beautiful bottle of Cabernet that is fantstic to approach now, but should also continue to evolve for quite some time.
