Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
"Blackberry, blackcurrant, graphite and tar aromas. Crushed stone, too. Full-bodied, yet firm, fresh and bright with a creamy, crunchy finish. One of the best values in Napa appellation designated reds. Drink or hold." James Suckling 95 points Drink 2023-32
Lush, with boysenberry, plum and blackberry compote flavors liberally laced with licorice snap and sweet spice accents. Reveals a glimmer of graphite on the finish to keep it honest. For the hedonist crowd. Drink now through 2032. 46,000 cases made.
This dark, brooding and full-bodied wine includes a nice percentage of Merlot and Petit Verdot. Supple, well-integrated tannins give it a burly sensibility that evolves and softens into earthy notes of dried herb, tobacco and clove that accent the black fruit.
