2016 Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1383489 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot, the very deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled prances out of the glass with gorgeous black cherries, molten chocolate, licorice and warm cassis scents plus underlying notions of candied violets, cigar box and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, the palate possesses great elegance and bags of poise with wonderfully ripe, plush tannins framing the perfumed black fruits, finishing very long and layered. (LPB) 97+ Inner quote mark (10/2018)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark A wine that incorporates 3% Petite Verdot, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled is a beautifully classic, elegant red that has ample blackberry, cassis, crushed rock, and graphite aromas and flavors, full-body, beautiful balance, and the purity of fruit that's the hallmark of this vintage. It will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and drink nicely for 15+. It's a thrilling, complete Napa Cabernet Sauvignon that does everything right. Inner quote mark (1/2019)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Sourced from the Martin Stelling Vineyard behind the winery, this is classic Napa and a gorgeous celebration of the variety. Blended with 3% Petit Verdot, it offers notes of red fruit, turned earth, graphite and anise, with a light toasting of oak to balance. It finishes lush and succulent in feel. (VB) Inner quote mark (7/2019)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Violet-like aromas with rich blackcurrants, leading to a ripe and juicy, dark berry-fruited palate with very even, concise and fresh style. Imposing structure really commands the finish. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (10/2018)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Solidly built, with a well of cassis and dark plum fruit forming the core, featuring mouthwatering mineral, savory, tobacco and menthol streaks throughout. Delivers weight and freshness. (JM) Inner quote mark (6/2019)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Far Niente's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Bottled is soft, fruity and inviting, all of which make it an excellent choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years. Succulent black cherry, espresso, mocha, new leather, cloves and menthol build in a creamy, resonant Cabernet Sauvignon. This plump, juicy Cabernet Sauvignon should drink well for the next 15 years or more. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2018)
