Favia Cerro Sur Proprietary Red 2017 750 ML
Favia Wine was founded by noted viticulturist Annie Favia and her husband and wine maker, Andy Erickson. Andy’s first winemaking job was with John Kongsgaard at Newton, and then Bob Levy of Harlan scooped him up to assist at BOND. Later, he became the winemaker at Ovid, Arietta, Screaming Eagle, and Dalla Valle. Annie’s viticultural work began with David Abreu, shepherding Napa’s Grand Cru vineyards for Harlan, Screaming Eagle, Ovid, Sloan, Bryant, Colgin, and Staglin. Together in 2003, they quietly launched Favia, which stands as a reflection of the couple’s most dedicated work.
The fruit for our Cerro Sur comes from a breathtaking mountaintop block of Cabernet Franc planted nearly 40 years ago on the famed Rancho Chimiles, high in the Vaca Mountains. Having produced this wine for more than a decade, we can confidently say that this is truly a wine from a very special terroir. The vines consistently produce wines of power, energy, balance and complexity. A long maceration on the skins, minimal racking, barrel aging for 22 months in French oak, and bottling without filtration or fining, help to capture the many nuances of this special wine.
69% Cabernet Franc, 31% Cabernet Sauvignon 172 cases produced

This offers up perfumed cassis, warm cherry preserves and smoldering red tea aromas and flavors, set against a backdrop of savory and iron accents. The long finish unfurls slowly, with a smoldering feel. Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Best from 2021 through 2032.

From a higher elevation north-facing site, the 2017 Cerro Sur is 73% Cabernet Franc and 27% Cabernet Sauvignon brought up in 50% new French oak. It offers beautiful Cabernet Franc dark, chocolately fruit as well as plenty of tobacco, earth, forest floor, violets, and truffle aromas and flavors. Deep, rich, medium to full-bodied, and balanced, it’s already approachable yet will benefit from 4-5 years of bottle age.
