Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon 2012


SKU 3017409022


The 2012 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of mixed berry fruit, boysenberry, chocolate covered cherries, layered with hints of graphite and toasted oak. On the palate, a smooth entry is followed by intense, ripe berry notes. This wine is focused and silky through the midpalate, building to a finish with broad tannins and notes of cedar and toasted oak.

Wine EnthusiastGentle on the front palate, this gorgeously rendered Cabernet Sauvignon, with smatterings of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, develops weight and body as it goes, while retaining classic restraint. Cherry and cassis counterpoise layers of toasty oak, cedar and silky tannins, finishing balanced.

Wine SpectatorA style that features dry, dusty, cedary oak and dried berry, seemingly short on richness and depth. The dry, savory, leathery edge is fatiguing. Best from 2016 through 2026. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 9,552 cases made.
