The 2009 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of boysenberry and blackberry pie, tobacco leaf, cassis and toasted oak. The wine is chewy on entry, with black cherry fruit supported by warm, spiced oak. Thick and structured, the wine lingers on the palate with flavors of boysenberry, cherry and spice. The wine's big, firm tannins are hallmarks of great aging potential.
"Tight, complex and concentrated, this outstanding Cab harbors a pretty core of spicy currant, anise, tar, sage and cedar, turning supple and harmonious on the finish, where the flavors fan out and show remarkable depth and finesse. Will reward cellaring."
The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon comes across as a touch rough around the edges. There is good depth to the dark varietal fruit, but today the wine’s angular contours make it hard for the wine to be as expressive as it could, or frankly should be, considering the price. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
