Description

55% Cabernet Franc, 45% Cabernet Sauvignon. Favia is a collaboration between wife and husband, Annie Favia and Andy Erickson. Their philosophy is simple: create soulful wines that express the true nature of the vineyards from which they come. Favia focuses on finding unique vineyard sites with soils, climate, and aspects ideal for growing exquisite wine grapes, and developing strong relationships with winegrowers to perfect viticultural practices. In the winery, gentle handling, minimal intervention, and strict monitoring of the wine allow their grapes to speak for themselves. This is a new way forward in Napa Valley. La Magdalena is a statuesque blend of Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine is as rich and complex as the soils from which it grows. Hailing from high on the plateau that is Oakville Ranch, it is deep, layered, and eminently ageable. Discover the evolution of red wines from Napa.
