2014 Favia La Magdalena

The 2014 La Magdalena is another drop-dead gorgeous beauty from Favia. The aromatics are a bit attenuated relative to how the wine showed last year. Some of that may be attributable to its recent bottling. We will see. For now, the 2014 is fresh and nicely delineated throughout. Red cherry jam, mocha, wild flowers and sweet spices all flesh out in the glass.

2014 Favia La Magdalena Napa Valley Red Wine

The La Magdalena is once again majestic. Vivid, nuanced and remarkably detailed for such a big wine, the 2014 exhibits striking aromatic presence to match its finely sculpted personality. Translucent energy and power abound. La Magdalena is a blend of equal parts Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, co-fermented, from Oakville Ranch.
