The 2018 Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is another spectacular wine from Favia in this vintage. Sourced from Oakville Ranch, this fabulous wine instantly bursts open, taking no time to begin to impress as it shows off its incredibly perfumed aromatics of dark currants, black raspberries and hints of blueberries that are laced with nuances of tobacco, violets, cast iron, dried loam and dried exotic spices that leap from the glass. On the palate this is full-bodied, layered and concentrated. It possesses outstanding overall structure and balance, while retaining a remarkable sense of freshness. It all comes together beautifully on the ultra long finish that lingers on for what seems forever. An absolute gem of a wine from Favia that should go on to age brilliantly for decades.
