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.

"Over the last several years, Faust has been gaining traction in the marketplace. The 2016 Faust Cabernet Sauvignon is an excellent example of a sturdy, full-bodied Napa Cab. This wine is well-built, firm and redolent with sweet tannins. Its aromas and flavors of black fruit, oak, and a shading of dust make a good pairing partner with grilled meats." -90pts, Wilfred Wong

Reviews:

"The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is blended of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller portions of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, aged for 19 months in 30% new French oak. The core of the fruit comes from the Coombsville estate blended with some mountain and valley floor fruit from elsewhere. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it offers a beautiful core of ripe blackcurrants, blackberries and lavender with nuances of cedar chest, pencil lead and camphor plus a waft of tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a nice, firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and well-played freshness delivering a long, vibrant finish." -Rated 92, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
