ROBERT PARKER RATING: 93
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The finest Cabernet Sauvignon I have ever tasted from Far Niente may be the 2007 Estate. Its dense purple color is accompanied by fragrant aromatics of creme de cassis, spice box, underbrush, and forest floor. Voluptuously-textured and full-bodied with superb purity and depth as well as a layered, complete finish, this terrific wine should be drinkable before the 2006, but age just as long 20-25+ years.
WINE ENTHUSIAST RATING: 93
WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: The long, cool 2007 growing produced exceptional cabernet fruit at Far Niente's Martin Stelling Vineyard, a 100-acre site rising up into the Mayacamas hills above Oakville. It has the freshness and brightness of the best 2007s, and seems to do everything right, like the star quarterback in high school who happend to be handsome and gets straight A's. No, it's not complex, but it may get there in time. For now, it's all red plum flavor, spicy, lively and sleek. The balance makes it approachable with roast rack of lamb, and will hold it for long-term aging.
Bright with ripe, purple fruits, this wine will impress with complex, layered aromas of black licorice and briar patch. The silky entry progresses along the palate and gives way to dense, velvety chocolate and toast. Full-bodied and concentrated throughout, the wine lingers on with a long, layered finish.
