2018 Far Niente Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1495250 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Including small amounts of Petit Verdot, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, and Malbec, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon sports a deep purple color as well as classic Cabernet notes of blackcurrants, new leather, tobacco leaf, flowers, and lead pencil. Beautifully done on the palate and made in a seamless, elegant style, it has a kiss of Pauillac in its nicely integrated acidity, ripe, building tannins, a touch of earthiness, and a great finish. It's not a blockbuster, just seamless and elegant, with a thrilling character. It should keep for 20+ years. Inner quote mark (1/2021)

Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a real skip in its step, featuring bright, crunchy black and red fruits and a soft texture, finishing lively. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Creamed plum and blackberry notes glide through this plush and alluring red, while subtle loam, bay leaf and sweet tobacco accents fill in along the way, with a nice iron twang at the end. Approachable already, but there's no rush. (JM) Inner quote mark (3/2021)
