Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

SKU 670


The 1996 Far Niente Estate Cabernet Sauvignon has subtle blackberry and cassias flavors complemented by cedar oak aromas as well as the typical "dusty" components traditionally found among the finest soils of the western vineyards of Oakville. The vintage has produced wonderful silkiness with unusual grace. The blending has helped produce a wine that is soft and layered now, while further bottle aging will reward your patience with a longer and more velvety texture.

Wine SpectatorShopping for your cellar? Stash this California Cab away for the next two to ten years and you'll be rewarded. It's deliciously complex, with earth, cedar, plum, currant, black cherry and spice flavors, gaining depth and richness on the dry, firm finish.
