About The Wine

 

The fourth offering from Favia of a stand-alone bottling of Cabernet Sauvignon from Coombsville, this wine represents Annie and Andy's best expression of the historic, however newly ascendant, appellation in the southeast corner of the Napa Valley.They have been working with vineyards in this area for more than a nearly fifteen years and it is home to their winery. Its gravelly soils and proximity to San Pablo Bay combine to lend the wines an oldworld, savory quality, delivered at an impressive level of concentration and depth.  
 
The 2016 vintage of our 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."
