Cellar for up to 25 years. Decant 2 hours before serving.

Far Niente, meaning “without a care” in Italian, was originally founded in 1885 by gold rush veteran John Benson who enlisted the help of architect Hamden McIntyre to build the grand old stone winery. During Prohibition the estate was abandoned, and it was only in 1979 that the new owners Gil and Beth Nickel restored it to its former glory. Today the estate boasts 200 acres of prime vineyards across the Napa Valley.

This magnificent Cabernet is regarded as one of Napa’s finest. Fruit is primarily sourced from the revered Martin Stelling vineyard located behind the winery in Oakville. This plot is blessed with exceptional gravel and loam soils which help to produce elegant, refined wines with fantastic tannins. The fruit is carefully sorted in the winery so only the best fruit is used.

After vinification the young wine is aged in mostly new French oak barrels for 17 months in the historic Far Niente stone cellars. The result is a plush, concentrated Cabernet that’s bursting with succulent cassis, blackberries, dark plums, and hints of star anise and bitter chocolate. There’s a robust full body, firm tannins, and solid core of dark fruit on the palate, culminating in a long, harmonious finish seasoned with cigar box spice and cedar notes.
