Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 | Layered & Beautiful
Winery | The Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 presents intense yet fresh with juicy blue and black notes. Dark chocolate mixed with dried herbs seduces the palate, while silky tannins and lifting acidity lead to a layered and lingering finish.
Like his New York street artist namesake, this soulful bad boy is an eclectic and complex blend of all the Napa cool-kid sites. Coombsville, Rutherford, Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder, and Howell Mountain, create a Cabernet masterpiece with dark chocolate weight and bramble berry intensity, an impressive find for any collector.
94JS | “Very attractive aromas of blackcurrants, black olives, and dark leather with some cedar. It’s full-bodied with firm, silky tannins, and a refined, polished finish. Shows finesse and focus. Grows on the palate. Really delicious now, but will improve with age.”
Faust & Goethe
