About The Wine
Like its sister wine, La Magdalena, Favia's Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from select blocks at Oakville Ranch, high above the valley floor in the eastern hills of Oakville.
These red, iron rich soils produce wines of great stature and profound complexity, wines that have a signature and personality all their own. It is always a deep, structured, and complex wine – regal and statuesque.
The 2015 is no exception, with a saturated black-purple colour, impressive mass and generosity, round, sappy texture, and notes of salted dark chocolate, mocha, umeboshi, smoked meat and ripe black fruits.
Favia Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2015
"In the same ballpark, yet in a richer, more flamboyant style, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville boasts a deep purple color as well as tons of cassis and blackberry fruits intermixed with lots of leafy herbs, tobacco, and a Graves-like gravelly minerality. With full body, building tannins, and a layered, concentrated style, drink it any time over the coming 20-25 years."
