Favia 'Carbone', Napa Valley 2016
93 Points Jeb Dunnuck
Only the second vintage for this cuvée, the 2016 Carbone is made with the intent to be more approachable and ready to go. A blend of 61% Cabernet Franc, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest Petit Verdot, this incredibly charming, medium to full-bodied effort has impressive notes of blueberries, earth, and tobacco leaf. It’s ideal for readers looking to understand the style of this estate.
