2014 Favia Cabernet Sauvigon Oakville

Rich, ample and voluptuous, the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville is even better today than it was a year ago. This is an especially flamboyant, opulent style, yet all the elements fall into place effortlessly. Today, the 2015 is a total knock-out.

2014 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville

A wine of impact and power, Favia's 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville brings together the intensely savory/mineral style of the year and a huge core of fruit. Black cherry, mocha and espresso add shades of nuance, but the 2014 is above all else a wine of intensity and structure. It will be interesting to see what another year in barrel does here.

2013 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville has softer tannins, more mid-palate energy and overall resonance than the Coombsville Cabernet. Here it is the wine’s seamless personality and Oakville warmth that really elevate things in a meaningful way. The sheer intensity of the tannins virtually covers the fruit in a huge explosive, massively tannic wine that captures the pedigree of the vintage to the fullest. The 2013 emerges from Clone 7 and Clone 337 Cabernet Sauvignon in Oakville Ranch.

2013 Favia Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley

The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon offers beautiful Margaux-like floral notes, sweet blue and black fruits, beautifully integrated ripe tannin, adequate acidity and a judicious use of oak. It’s medium to full-bodied, extremely elegant and discreet, but intense at the same time. This is a beautiful example of combining power with complexity in an age-worthy, complete wine. Drink it over the next 20-25 years.
