2017 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville

$169.95

Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon is a benchmark of Oakville, and the wine is in gorgeous form in 2017. We never realized that Far Niente’s Estate Cabernet Sauvignon comes from the Martin Stelling Vineyard, which is at the absolute apogee of the giant alluvial fan that comprises To Kalon in Oakville. Stelling is surrounded by none other than Futo and Harlan Estate. We call that a nice neighborhood, and indeed it is, with beautifully gravelly loams.

For its vineyard pedigree, vintage quality, and stellar track record, Far Niente’s 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon is a great wine to cellar and enjoy for 20 years. Let’s put a case on the truck!
