    This is exactly what I want from a top-flight Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The Coombsville AVA has stepped up its quality immensely over the last few vintages and now many of their releases are dollar-for-dollar the best values in all of Napa Valley. The Farella Estate Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon is loaded with dark chocolate and blackberry kirsch notes along with mocha and espresso flavors this creamy, richly-textured beauty is a hedonist's delight.

    For those of you looking for a serious old-school Napa Cabernet with great structure and aging potential, look no further! The 2013 Farella Estate Cabernet has all the elements of a top-class Napa wine, with a much more reasonable price point. The wine combines lush dark fruit, pungent eucalyptus and mint notes, solid but refined structure, and just a kiss of toasted oak. It's composed of everything you want in a big and bold California Cabernet, without being the slightest bit out of balance or overdone. If you hide this in your cellar for a few years, the result should be stunning.

    If you haven't explored the wines of Coombsville, you certainly should, adding this wine to the top of your list. Farella's Cabernet Sauvignon really showcases the flavor elements of this southeastern Napa AVA with intensity and elegance. There are aromas of graphite, blue and black fruits that carry over to the palate with smokiness and spice. Two thumbs up!

    I was super impressed by the combination of power and poise in this beautiful 2013 Cab from Farella. The wine is bristling with black / blue fruit, briary notes, sweet tobacco, graphite and subtle oak spice. The palate is dense and concentrated but not at all confected or jammy. This has all the power one expects from Napa Cab plus the balance and structure that makes the cooler Coombsville AVA so special. You will see "Farella Vineyard" on the labels of many super high-end Napa bottlings...Realm and Lail to name but a few...but this estate, namesake bottling from Farella comes at a fraction of those prices and you can bet they kept their very best fruit for themselves! This is an absolute steal in the world of boutique Napa Cabernet for the highly regarded 2013 vintage.
