"This is firm and juicy yet generous and fruity at the same time. Has a plush and wild feel. Extremely savory. Flavorful finish. Drink now or hold."~JS
Wine Spectator 93
"Lush and inviting, with cassis, creamed plum and boysenberry puree flavors gliding through on a very polished structure, while anise, mocha and tobacco accents check in on the finish. A seductive style. Drink now through 2028."–JM

Robert Parker 92
“A beautiful core of ripe blackcurrants, blackberries and lavender with nuances of cedar chest ... Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a nice, firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and well-played freshness delivering a long, vibrant finish.”-RP
“The 2016 Faust Cabernet is a blend of their estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford and mountain sourcing in Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder, and Howell Mountain. Intense yet fresh with juicy blue and black notes. Notes of dark chocolate and dried herbs seduce the palate while silky tannins and lifting acidity leads to a layered and lingering finish.”-Winemaker’s Notes
“Damned to an eternity of doing what they love. At Faust, they seek to express the complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon and the diversity of the Napa Valley by sourcing from estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford, as well as small lots from spectacular mountain AVAs such as Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. Uniting these disparate regions allowed us to create a rich, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that truly represents the soul of the grape.”-Winery Notes
Excellent!!!! - Great wine for the price. Definitely in my top 3 Cabs. Bold with an awesome finish.
