To capture the complexity of the grape and diversity of the Napa Valley, Faust seeks Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Agustin’s family vineyards in Rutherford and Napa’s soon-to-be named Tulocay viticultural area in the eastern foothills south of Atlas Peak, as well as small lots from diverse mountain and valley terroirs. Classic Napa Valley red and black fruit in the nose, also aromas of vanilla and toasted nuts. Dense and rich on the palate with abundant lip-smacking fruit and a supple, luxurious finish.
The rich nose grabs you at the outset. Smoother and more mineral than many cabs. Blackberries are the dominant fruit, but the balance with the minerality was the main draw for me.
Starts very soft, with a smokey and smooth finish. As it sits in the glass you'll detect more cherries and tannin on the finish.
A beautiful, balanced Cabernet from the owners of Quintessa. Wonderful aromas of cherry and black fruits. The nose on this wine is just great. Paired with grilled beef tenderloin and it was perfect.
more subtle and less overwhelming cab
Had it in a 3L so it drank pretty well. What stood out to me was the acidity and minerality. It really drank with some grip. Blueberry flavors everywhere and came to what I refer to as that Darioush finish. We finished the bottle so I guess thats saying something! Not a game changer in my book but showed up well for my guests and I! MP-91
Not quite as full as l look for in a Cabernet Sauvignon, but nice fruit and round finish
A lovely medium bodied California Cab. Soft tannins and subtle spice notes along with dark berries and hints of stone fruit. It doesn't need food, but it would be delicious with a juicy steak or lamb chop.
