Tasting Notes

Very early vintage from the revival of a Napa Valley classic. Did you know that Far Niente was founded in 1885 by the uncle of famous American impressionist painter, Winslow Homer? More from the winery: "Far Niente prospered until the onset of Prohibition in 1919, when it was abandoned and left to fall into disrepair. Sixty years later, in 1979, Gil Nickel purchased the winery and adjacent vineyard and began a three-year restoration of the property." From wine writer Richard Jennings: "Medium red violet color with pale meniscus; truffle, dried mushroom, mature, Bordeaux-like nose; good, somewhat youthful, cassis palate with firm tannins, needs more time; medium-plus finish."
