2016 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville is fascinating to taste next to the 2015, as it exudes the savoriness and structural profile that are both such signatures of the wines from this southern part of the Napa Valley. Powerful and explosive in the glass, the 2016 offers up an exciting mélange of lavender, plum, chocolate, sage and crushed rocks. Even with all of its size, the 2016 has tons of nuance and detail. I can't wait to taste this from bottle.

2016 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville

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. 343 cases produced.

2016 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville, Napa Valley

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.

2015 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville

Dark cherry, plum, mocha, licorice, spice and menthol infuse the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville. The radiant personality of the year comes through nicely in this sumptuous, accessible Cabernet Sauvignon. I expect the 2015 will offer its best drinking sooner rather than later. Today, it is forward, inviting and supremely delicious.

2015 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville

Deep purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville is scented of blackcurrants, black cherries and mulberries with touches of bay leaves, tilled soil and tree bark plus a hint of truffles. Medium to full-bodied and perfumed in the mouth, the black berry and fragrant earth layers are framed by grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long.

2014 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville

Favia's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville is just as compelling from bottle as it was from barrel. Powerful and intensely savory in the glass, the 2014 exudes power, with plenty of a good bit of supporting Coombsville structure. Dark red cherry, plum, iron, smoke and crushed rocks build into the intense, super-expressive finish. What a gorgeous wine this is.

2014 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville is rich and dense to the point that the tannins are nearly buried by the sheer intensity of the fruit. This is a surprisingly dense wine for the vintage. Hints of iron and smoke add some complexity, but the 2014 is hard to fully read today.

2013 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville, Napa Valley

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon from the southeastern Napa AVA of Coombsville has a similar saturated ruby/purple color. It’s slightly more chunky with muscular blackberry and blueberry fruit, full body and a very structured, reserved, backward personality. This is a beauty, slightly bigger and more tannic than the other Favia offerings. Drink it over the next 25 years.

2013 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon, Coombsville, Napa Valley

A towering, statuesque wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville shows just how profound this Napa Valley vintage is shaping up to be. Graphite, smoke, sage, and rosemary are some of the many notes that lift from the glass as this dark, dense wine shows off its considerable pedigree. Broad swaths of tannin lie in the background, giving the wine much of its energy and virile, imposing personality.
