The 2014 Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon opens with beautifully lifted spice and black fruit aromatics-clove, anise, black cherry and blackberry-layered with a hint of rich oak. A round, supple entry leads to a silky, smooth midpalate. Cassis, clove, and toasted oak complement the black and red fruit flavors. Fine-grained, age-worthy tannins provide structure to the dark, juicy finish.

Wine AdvocateOne of the iconic wineries of Napa Valley, this blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon and the rest Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec has produced a relatively restrained and elegant 2014, with pure crème de cassis fruit, some incense, licorice and subtle background barrique. It is medium to full-bodied, with sweet tannin, plenty of charm, and a relatively velvety smooth finish with well-integrated tannins and wood. This is approachable now and should continue to evolve nicely for 15-20 years.

Wine Spectator Very tight and herbal, with a strong tannic structure, cedary oak accents and a deep yet closed core of savory herb, blackberry and spice flavors. Ends with firm, grippy tannins that should reward with time. Best from 2020 through 2024. 8,500 cases made.
