Favia Carbone Red 2015


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

38% Cab Franc, 62% Cabernet Sauvignon from one of the most dramatic plantings of Cabernet Franc that Annie Favia & Andy Erickson have seen, situated high in the mountains on a large holding known as Rancho Chimiles. These mature vines, now in their mid-thirties, produce wines with a singular aromatic profile, broad muscular tannins and bright natural acidity. This area is unique, with perfectly drained volcanic and mineral-rich soils, a cooling breeze off the San Francisco Bay, and an infinite array of slopes and exposures.

Wine SpectatorA muscular style, with a rich core of dusty, loamy earth, cedar, cigar box and extracted dark berry flavors, turning supple and polished on the finish while flexing a tannic backbone. Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2028.
