The 1986 Cabernet Sauvignon has full berry fruit flavors complemented by toasty oak aromas, as well as the typically "dusty" components traditionally found among the Rutherford and Oakville Bench vineyards. The Cabernet Franc has helped produce a wine which is soft and mouth filling now, while further bottle aging will reward your patience with a longer finish and more velvety texture.

Wine SpectatorThis wine was one of Far Niente's early successes, yet, at age 10, it's showing some diluted, earthy flavors. With aeration, however, it exhibits a core of currant, cherry and toasty oak flavors, and it is well balanced. Best to drink soon.

Wine AdvocateA lean, compact, excessively acidic and tannic wine, with no length or flavor extraction, this 1986 Cabernet is tightly knit and youthful, but it appears to have no place to go. An oenological masterpiece!

Robert Parker, August 1996
