James Suckling Review
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. Drink or hold.
Wine Tasting Notes
The core of Faust comes from the Coombsville Estate as well as from the vineyards in Rutherford and Oakville. Grapes were also sourced from hillside and cooler regions of the Napa Valley. This wine jumps out of the glass with aromas of fresh black cherry and plum. Layers of savory cherry compote, earth, cedar and graphite are rounded out by a long finish with hints of dark chocolate, balanced acidity and minerality.
83% Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc
