Wine Advocate 94 points - A brilliant offering from Far Niente, this blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and the rest Merlot and Petit Verdot exhibits a dense opaque ruby/purple color as well as copious notes of ink, graphite, creme de cassis and charcoal. Layered, expansive, full-bodied and youthful, it can be drunk now or cellared for two decades. It is very impressive! (Jun 2012)
Far Niente wines are renowned for their ability to gracefully age and become more nuanced and elegant with time. The Cave Collection allows for the limited release of Far Niente wines with additional age, for a number of years after the vintage.
