K&L Notes

The 2009 Oakville Cab from Far Niente has just a splash of Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc. Most of the grapes come from the Martin Stelling Vineyard, with small contributions from Halter Valley and Sullenger Vineyards. NOTE: In Decanter, writer Stephen Brook scored the Far Niente Oakville 95 points; the 90 point score is the tasting panel's averaged score. From the winery: "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."
