2016 Farella Vineyard Cabernet SauvignonCoombsville
Frank and Tom Farella’s remarkable commitment to precise farming and responsible stewardship is evident in the outstanding wine this site produces year-to-year. The finesse of a cool-climate appellation and an incredible sense of depth that demands your continued attention are hallmarks of Farella that we have come to know and love. Every harvest season is an opportunity to make a truly singular wine, but, with each passing year, the high-tone character and edgy coolness of Farella’s “Rockpile Block” endure, reminding us just what sparked our love affair with this vineyard and renewing our commitment to pay tribute to this place.
