Favia Erickson Winegrowers was started in 2003 by Annie Favia and Andy Erickson. The couple are both Napa Valley winemakers with formidable resumes. Favia worked for John Kongsgaard and David Abreu, among others, and Erickson has been a winemaker at Screaming Eagle, Dalla Valle and other wineries. The couple owns vineyards but also sources grapes from Amador County and Napa Valley. They make Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, as well as Viognier and Rhone-style blends. The wines are generally available only via Favia’s mailing list.
Stones and sliced cooked apples with straw and green-melon undertones. Full-bodied, tight and chewy. Extremely dense, yet bright. No malo gives it the edge. Tastes like traditional Chablis. Yes. Drink or hold.
