“A barrel sample, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored, with a decadent cassis, baked blackberries and plum preserves-scented nose, plus hints of spice cake, cedar and Marmite toast. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and wonderfully spicy in the mouth, it has velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long. Range: 92-94.”-RP
“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 Dr. Faust barters his soul in the afterlife in exchange for another chance at youth. He gets his chance, yet ultimately his soul is saved by love.
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, 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.
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.“-Winery Notes

Oddly soapy - I purchased this wine based on reviews. It is over the top Napa Cab, for sure. And in my book, it is way too young to drink. There's a lot going on here in addition to big fruit and oak, but the wine is out of balance at this point in its development, with an oddly soapy nose and overly viscous palate. The tannins are buried by comparison. If you're purchasing Napa Cab for today, I would recommend Freemark Abbey. Empire's price is the best in the country and it is far more balanced and versatile than Faust. If you're more of a gambler, buy this and open it in two years.
