"The Faust 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon comes largely from vineyards in southern Napa Valley’s Coombsville and Atlas Peak, but also includes some cross-AVA material from areas such as Yountville, Mt. Veeder, St. Helena and Rutherford. It is a well-made, ripe, concentrated, deep ruby/purple-colored Cabernet Sauvignon with sweet tannin, an attractive, cedary, licorice-infused aromatic and flavor profile, medium to full body and supple tannins. It seems to be the most drinkable and up-front of the Faust wines.

Faust is one of projects under the Quintessa umbrella and the Agustin Huneeus family." (WA)

"Flamboyant and concentrated red in an old school way. Full-bodied and very velvety. Big and juicy. Needs time to soften and come together but some may like its full-throttle style now." (JS)

Winery Notes:
Rich, juicy blackberry, blueberry and cassis with dark chocolate and cedar spice notes. The dark fruit and minerality shine and are inherent of Coombsville AVA, where our Faust Estate Vineyard is located. A beautiful entry and mid palate are followed by rich aromas and flavors and a sweet fruit finish.
