The 2013 Proprietary Red La Magdalena, which I think contains a good bit of Cabernet Franc in the blend, has a dense bluish/purple color, a wonderfully sweet inner core of graphite, blueberry liqueur, black raspberries and cassis. Medium to full-bodied, with flawless integration of tannin and acidity, this is a terrific example of top-flight viticulture and winemaking. It’s no wimpy wine at 14.8% natural alcohol. The tannins are soft enough to give the wine accessability now, but it should continue to age nicely for 20+ years. (RP)
A wine that has really gained over the last year, the 2013 La Magdalena is simply captivating in its beauty. Finely sculpted yet massive on the palate, the 2013 oozes with class. Inky dark fruit, graphite, smoke, licorice and tobacco all come alive in a powerful wine endowed with tremendous energy. La Magdalena is a Cabernet Franc/Cabernet Sauvignon from the red soils of Oakville Ranch. This is a tremendous showing from Favia. (AG)
