2019 Far Niente Estate Bottled Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville, USA
An elegant perfume of mixed berries, baking spice, dried lavender and thyme open onto a full palate layered with expansive mixed berry, black tea, toasted oak and spice flavors. Focused and fresh, fine grained tannins support the wine throughout, while the finish is silky, long and lifted.
Blend: 94% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot, 1% Petit Verdot, 1% Cabernet Franc
Rated 95 points James Suckling
Aromas of dark plums, black olives, bark, dried herbs and cloves. Medium-to full-bodied with powdery tannins. Rich and creamy with chocolate and black fruit on the palate. Chewy finish with excellent length. Fresh. Drink from 2023.

COMMENTARY: The 2019 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon is a class act showcasing the Napa Valley at its best. TASTING NOTES: This wine expresses aromas and flavors of black fruit, fragrant spices, licorice, and a suggestion of oak. Pair it with a crown roast of lamb.
