The 2017 Farella Cabernet is a fantastic expression in this vintage. This offers wonderful combination of fresh ripe fruit and an intense savory character. It begins with aromas of black cherries, raspberries and back plums, which are woven together with green bell pepper, tobacco, lavender, graphite and spices that all carry on to the palate. This contines to impress with its medium-full body that is beautifully structured with polished tannins resulting in a gorgeous velvety texture. It is all underlined by a lovely layer of acidity that keeps it fresh and lively through the finish. While this is certainly a pleasure to drink today, it should go on to evolve and offer years of enjoyment ahead.
