Notes from the Winemaker:
A regal expression of Cabernet Sauvignon from this very special appellation. Volcanic soils, cooler temperatures, and thoughtful viticulture result in precise textural and aromatic intensity. A true archetype of Coombsville.

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.

Ratings & Reviews



95 Points & #94 Top 100 Wines of 2019 - Wine Spectator:

"Ripe and vivid, with a stream of boysenberry, black currant and plum fruit racing along in lockstep, while anise, sage and singed tobacco notes fill in. The finish is underscored by graphite-edged grip, showing good latent energy. Powerful and pure. Best from 2021 through 2035. 342 cases made." —JM

96 Points - Vinous:
"Favia's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville is wonderfully vivid and alive in the glass. Black cherry, plum, tobacco, leather, smoke, licorice and grilled herbs infuse this potent, savory Cabernet Sauvignon. Medium in body and yet full of bold flavors, the 2016 has so much to offer. Today it is deep, vivid and supremely balanced, with all of the character it showed from barrel. " Antonio Galloni - (Dec 2018)

96 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"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." - Jeb Dunnuck (1/31/2019)

96 Points - James Suckling:
"This is really pretty with blackcurrant and lead-pencil aromas and flavors. Solid core of fruit to the firm and lightly chewy tannins. It’s polished and so real. Focused. Needs four or five years to soften, but already a joy to taste. Try after 2024." - (17 Jan, 2020 )

96 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the very deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Coombsville bursts forth with exuberant black cherries, crushed blackcurrants and black raspberries with touches of violets, camphor, damp soil and mossy bark plus a waft of black tea. Full and generous, with a rock-solid construction, it has layer upon layer of black and red fruits and seamless freshness, finishing long and perfumed. 343 cases produced." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (13th Dec 2018)
