Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Spectator | Rating: 96

Beautifully crafted, smooth and seamless, with sharp focus on a rich, layered band of spicy berry, mineral, graphite, blueberry and gravel. Full-bodied, elegant and lively on palate, with a long, persistent finish. One of the best California Cabernet Franc-based wines I've tried. Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon.

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

(from David Abreu's Madrona Ranch property in St. Helena; a 75/25 blend of cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon): Bright ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of redcurrant, cherry, licorice and violet. Fine-grained, suave and utterly seamless, with lovely floral lift. This essentially gentle wine finishes sweet and long, with a fine dusting of tannins and noteworthy breadth. Winemaker Andy Erickson describes this as the most European in style of the three Favia reds, and most appreciated by the New York market.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 92

The 2008 La Magdalena is totally effortless from start to finish. The essence of dark fruit, asphalt, wild flowers and mocha is beautifully layered in this rich, harmonious wine. The 2008 should be at its finest over the next decade or so
