Tasting Notes: 1996 Far Niente Cave Collection Cabernet

03.15.13

Winekmaker Nicole Marchesi recently tasted the 1996 Far Niente Cave Collection Cabernet Sauvignon and shares how the wine has evolved over the years. The subtle blackberry, cassis and cedar aromas of this wine's youth have developed into a classic bottle bouquet of dried cherry and perfume. Soft and layered upon release, the texture has become even silkier with delicate tannis and mouthwatering acidity on the finish. Classically structured and ready to enjoy now! 1996 Far Niente Cabernet You can acquire this wine online or by calling the winery at (707) 944-2861.
