K&L Notes

Far Niente's 2005 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon combines fruit from a variety of sites, blending the supple, sweet fruit from the flatter portion of the Martin Stelling Vineyard with more tannic, structured fruit from Halter Valley, in the gently rolling Mayacamas foothills. A small percentage of fruit from Nickel & Nickel's Sullenger Vineyard rounds out the blend, creating a wine of balance, with the depth and concentration expected from an Oakville Cab. A cooler, longer growing season in 2005 and extended contact with the skins add elegance and rich color to a wine thick with black fruit, anise and jammy blackberry flavors. Soft on the approach, there is plenty of weight on the wine's mid-palate framed by velvety tannins on the finish.
