2009 Oakville Napa Valley Martin Stell_ing Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon

This is Far Niente’s home vineyard, 100 acres on an alluvial benchland set against the western hills of Oakville. Nickel & Nickel farms a prime, two-acre hillside block for this wine, then polishes it with new oak (61 percent, the balance one year old barrels). At first, it seems like a super soft, super rich Napa Valley red. Then air brings out the detail in the tannins, spicy, elegant and firm. With a day of air, it has tightened up into a gracious cabernet, predicting how well it will age in bottle. (445 cases)
