77% Cabernet Sauvignon; 23% Cabernet Franc
With a nod to the past, and with an eye toward continuing their story CARBONE celebrates the history and promise of the property Favia has meticulously restored. The winery's heritage is honored by crafting this exuberant expression of Napa Valley that is to be enjoyed.
94 points Jeb DunnuckThe second wine of the estate that's from wines that didn't make the blend, the 2017 Carbone is 77% Cabernet Sauvignon and 23% Cabernet Franc that spent slightly less time in oak. It's a great introduction to the wines of this estate and offers loads of crème de cassis, tobacco, forest floor, lead pencil, and chocolate aromas and flavors. Rounded, supple, beautifully textured, and with ripe tannins, it's a smoking good Cabernet Sauvignon that punches above its price point.
