95Vinous / IWC of the most distinctive wines in this range, and also one of the finest I have ever tasted from proprietor Jeff Ames. Savory herb, chocolate, leather, smoke, graphite, licorice and menthol are all amped up in this beautifully layered, sumptuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Napa Valley is full of great vineyards, but Farella stands out for its ability to yield layered, nuanced Cabernets that deliver fruit intensity, structure and nuance. This is a fabulous showing.

94+ The Wine Advocate

...charges out of the gate with crushed blackberries, wild blueberries and warm redcurrants with suggestions of bay leaves, camphor, tobacco and fertile loam plus a waft of cedar chest. Full-bodied with a built-like-a-brick-house frame of grainy tannins and great freshness, if finishes with black fruit layers and a compelling herbal lift.

93+ Jeb Dunnuck

...offers a deep, more mineral-laced style with terrific notes of black (and some blue) fruits, scorched earth, spring flowers, dark chocolate, and graphite.

91Wine Spectator

Weaves together a supple array of loamy, dusty earth, dried berry, juicy plum and toasty, cedary oak, making for a tasty mouthful, with touches of mint and bay leaf emerging on the finish.


United States, California, Napa Valley, Coombsville

Coombsville AVA is one of Napa Valley’s newer appellations, having received its official designation only in 2011. Tucked just to the northeast of Los Carneros and a few minutes’ drive east of downtown Napa, the Coombsville appellation is relatively large at a total of 11,000 acres. The elevation varies from 100 to 1,000 feet, and the climate is moderated by marine breezes from the San Pablo Bay. The main grape varieties here are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Chardonnay, Syrah and Pinot Noir.


Red Wine, Cabernet Sauvignon

One of the most widely grown grape varieties, it can be found in nearly every wine growing region. A cross between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a hardy vine that produces a full-bodied wine with high tannins and great aging potential.
