Carbone is a project of husband and wife team Annie Favia and Andy Erickson. Annie is a talented winegrower who earned her chops working with Napa legends John Kongsgaard and Cathy Corison. Andy has been crafting some of Napa's most coveted Cabernets including Screaming Eagle, Harlan, Dalle Valle, Staglin, Ovid, and Mayacamas. 

Together they farm their own vineyard surrounding their home in a stellar corner of Napa's coolest new area Coombsville. The top wines are sold under the label Favia. Carbone is the second label of the winery, with the same juice as Favia fermented and aged identically. They go through a barrel selection process each vintage and choose the barrels that seem to have the most aging potential to go into the Favia line and the barrels that are more approachable and enjoyable to drink young for the Carbone line. 


"2019 Favia CARBONE Red Wine Napa Valley

Long before our arrival, in the early days of Napa Valley viticulture, three brothers settled in what is now known as Coombsville. Antonio, Lorenzo, and Nicola Carbone were the first Italian immigrants to inhabit this quiet, rolling area east of the city of Napa, cultivating their first crops in 1872. They planted grapes on the hillsides, and on the farm around their homestead planted fruits and vegetables in abundance. By 1886, they had constructed at least one residence, as well as a stone cellar that still remains. The property became known as the Antonio Carbone Winery and Italian Gardens.

We are incredibly lucky to have painstakingly restored the old residences, winery, orchards and gardens, and now call this home to our family and to Favia Wines. Drawing from the same vineyard blocks we’ve worked with for nearly fifteen years, we are honing our craft with each season, and we could not be closer to the wines than we are now, living above the barrel cellar.

Created for enjoyment immediately upon release, the Carbone red wine does indeed have the structure and concentration to age for many years. However, in the spirit of family gatherings, dinners with friends, and less formal occasions, this wine is blended to be opened and shared without hesitation, and hopefully around a table filled with delicious food cooked together with love. A blend of 58% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot, it showcases our favorite attributes of our Napa Valley vineyards, and the strength of the 2019 vintage: depth, concentration, finesse, and energy. Aromas of ripe black fruits, baking spices, and graphite are complemented by notes of orange blossom, red currant, cardamom, and fresh blueberry. On the palate there is a wonderful balance, subtle power, and a confident length, with flavors of raspberry, Luxardo cherries, pan grillé, and cocoa powder. This wine will certainly continue to open with time, but in such a special vintage, there is really no reason to wait.
