Very attractive aromas of blackcurrants, black olives and dark leather with some cedar. It’s full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a refined, polished finish. Shows finesse and focus. Grows on the palate. Really delicious now, but will improve with age. Drink or hold.

The 2018 Faust Cabernet Sauvignon deftly combines some of Napa Valley's best AVAs into a wine of excellence. This wine shows beautiful aromas and flavors of red and black fruits along with anise and oak. Enjoy with grilled beef. (Tasted: October 17, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
The core of Faust comes from our Coombsville Estate as well as from our vineyards in Rutherford and Oakville. This wine jumps out of the glass with aromas of fresh black cherry and plum. Layers of savory cherry compote, earth, cedar and graphite are rounded out by a long finish with hints of dark chocolate, balanced acidity and minerality.
