Far Niente Cabernet Sauvignon 1986
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!
