COMMENTARY: The 2017 Favia Carbone Red is a vibrant and round Napa Valley red wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits rich and layered textures. Its finely-tuned red and black fruit should pair well with a nicely-seasoned Porchetta. (Tasted: September 26, 2019, San Francisco, CA USA)

The second wine of the estate that's from wines that didn't make the blend, the 2017 Carbone is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Cabernet Franc that spent slightly less time in oak. It's a great introduction to the wines of this estate and offers loads of crème de cassis, tobacco, forest floor, lead pencil, and chocolate aromas and flavors. Rounded, supple, beautifully textured, and with ripe tannins, it's a smoking good Cabernet Sauvignon that punches above its price point.

Blueberries and slate with hints of cedar. Medium to full body, lightly rounded tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink or hold.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
