2010 Agharta Farella Cabernet Sauvignon
About Farella Vineyard
Located in the sexy new Coombsville appellation in southern Napa Valley, this is a brilliant place for my kind of Cabernet Sauvignon. Rocky depleted soils, cool breezy coastal influence from the San Pablo Bay and the brilliance and warmth of the singular Napa Valley.
Winemaker's Tasting Note
Dark magenta with a black core, this Napa Valley Cabernet smells like a Classic. Cassis aromas mingle with lively spice, a tickle of green and concentrated fruit aromas. On the palate it is vibrant, lively and densely packed with dark fruits and proper Cabernet favors that are neither artificially bolstered nor hidden by obtrusive oak flavors. Drinking young currently, this is a bottle to decant on occasion with the intent on saving for a few years to unravel and unfold.
