Winemaker Notes

#94 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2019

The 2016 vintage of the Coombsville Cabernet Sauvignon possesses a remarkably pure Cabernet Sauvignon character, with notes of cassis, black tea, cocoa nibs, leather and bay laurel. The bright natural acidity, a hallmark of the appellation, bring life and energy to the flavor profile, along with black cherry, baking spices, coriander, and ripe tannins that leave a sweet, supple feeling on the finish. Dense and rich, this wine will continue to develop in the bottle for two decades or more.

The deep purple-colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville has classic blue fruit as well as plenty of green herbs, sage, tobacco, and graphite aromas and flavors. It’s another structured, vibrant, focused wine that needs bottle age.
D 96
Decanter
Coombsville, in the cool rugged volcanic hills above the town of Napa, is an ancient collapsed caldera, the crescent-shaped remnant of a volcano that erupted about 8 million years ago. It’s here that Andy and Annie Erickson decided to make Favia, their own tiny production Cabernet, after working for an all-star list of other wineries including Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle, Harlan, and Staglin. Beautifully balanced and vibrant with cassis and savory flavors, the 2016 has the makings of a classic: it’s majestically structured yet polished and supple.
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the very deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville bursts forth with exuberant black cherries, crushed blackcurrants and black raspberries with touches of violets, camphor, damp soil and mossy bark plus a waft of black tea. Full and generous, with a rock-solid construction, it has layer upon layer of black and red fruits and seamless freshness, finishing long and perfumed.

This is really pretty with blackcurrant and lead-pencil aromas and flavors. Solid core of fruit to the firm and lightly chewy tannins. It’s polished and so real. Focused. Needs four or five years to soften, but already a joy to taste. Try after 2024.

WS 95
Wine Spectator
Ripe and vivid, with a stream of boysenberry, black currant and plum fruit racing along in lockstep, while anise, sage and singed tobacco notes fill in. The finish is underscored by graphite-edged grip, showing good latent energy. Powerful and pure. Best from 2021 through 2035.

COMMENTARY: The 2016 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon, from the Coombsville AVA, shows what the future of Cab in the Napa Valley could become. This once cold region is just a bit warmer now. TASTING NOTES: This elegant wine is rich and balanced. Its beautiful red currant aromas and flavors stay bright and lively on the palate and into the wine's finish.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
