Big, full-bodied, deep black color. Strong structure in the mouth, soft structured finish, with a hint of sweet oak.
Jeremy Nickel, son of the late Gil Nickel, who founded Far Niente, farms this ten-acre vineyard in Oakville's Halter Valley, between the Mayacamas and Vaca mountains. He grew a tight, mineral-rich cabernet in 2007, a wine with the warmth of sun on stone. Intriguing flavors develop out of the tannin, with juicy, purple-berried fruit and cool notes of conifers. This is pungent and savory, a wine to cellar for several years before decanting with lamb.
