Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 | Layered & Beautiful
Winery | The Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 is a full-throttled Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. While aged for 19 months in 100% French oak, it offers nuance and silky tannins and notes of juicy blackberry, black cherry, and plum.
95JS | A dense yet fresh red with a blueberry and blackberry character and hints of tobacco and dark chocolate. Light bitterness adds to the complexity on the palate. While layered and beautiful. Juicy fruit at the finish. Drink or hold the Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2015.
94RP | The Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 presents a deep garnet-purple color. With a decadent cassis, baked blackberries and plum preserves-scented nose. Plus hints of spice cake, cedar and Marmite toast. While full-bodied, rich, concentrated and wonderfully spicy in the mouth. Finally, it has velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long.
Faust & Goethe
Faust, the wine, celebrates a legend which has inspired many great minds, among them the German poet Goethe, from whose masterpiece we draw our inspiration. In Goethe’s most famous work, the aging scholar Faust barters his soul in the afterlife in exchange for another chance at youth. So he gets his chance, yet ultimately his soul is saved by love.
Faust Wines, Huneeus & Quintess
Faust is the epitome of the style that has made Napa Cabernet Sauvignon world renowned: bold and powerful, yet elegant and concentrated. Top Cabernet Sauvignon lots are selected from vineyards Agustin Huneeus owns in Rutherford. Notably, a Napa Valley appellation synonymous with the best of Napa Valley Cabernet. As well as the up and coming, soon to be named Tulocay viticultural area south of Atlas Peak.
While both vineyards are carefully tended to produce low yields and great concentration. The grapes are double sorted and crushed at Quintessa, one of the Napa Valley’s most technologically sophisticated wineries, featuring gravity-flow design, oak fermentation, and naturally cooled caves.
