Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: Blackberry, Plum, Leather, Cacao
Faust is a tribute to Napa Valley's noblest grape – full-bodied, decadently rich and unctuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Faust is the second label from the outstanding Quintessa winery. The 2018 Faust Cabernet is a classic Bordeaux style blend of several estate vineyards. Aged for 19 months in French Oak. Fresh minerals and finely integrated tannins make this Napa classic very drinkable now or easily cellarable for the next 5+ years. On the palate you'll find sweet cherry, blackberry, vanilla, plum, leather, earth and blueberry fruit, with savory oak & cacao notes. The layers of complexity continue to develop throughout a silky finish. Will pair with barbequed or roasted red meats.
