Cabernet Sauvignon

5 cases produced


  • 100% Oakville appellation, estate grown fruit from Stelling Vineyard

Oakville is home to our winery as well as the surrounding 100-acre Martin Stelling Vineyard, the cornerstone of Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon since our first release in 1982. Planted on some of the most beautiful, gravelly loam soil in the Napa Valley, the Stelling Vineyard grows wines of considerable depth, with layers of dark fruit and supple, elegant tannins. Approachable upon release, time serves to enhance the flavors and nurture the bottle bouquet of our Cabernet, earning Far Niente the reputation for creating age-worthy wines. This 2013 vintage is an outstanding expression of our estate vineyard that brilliantly showcases the Far Niente house style.

Winemaker, Far Niente

Winemaker, Nicole Marchesi

I got my hands dirty in the cellar and lab at several internships before coming to Far Niente, where I started as enologist and then became assistant winemaker, and now winemaker. I’ve essentially grown up working with Far Niente’s vineyards in Coombsville and Oakville.

Country born: United States

Education: I received a B.S. in Viticulture and Enology from UC Davis and had internships in Sonoma and New Zealand. I consider my incredible colleagues and team at Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel, Dolce and EnRoute my mentors.

Years in the wine industry: 8 years

Winemaking Philosophy:
I believe that great winemaking begins in the vineyard. I work collaboratively with our viticulturist to grow great grapes. My job in the winery is to capture what each vineyard and block has to offer. Each wine lot is like a puzzle piece that needs to be assembled so that the final product is a harmonious blend which expresses both place and vintage, while staying true to the Far Niente house style.
