Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2016 Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of our estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford combined with mountain sourcing from vineyards in Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. Fans of the 2015 Faust will love the 2016, with notes of dark chocolate, blue and black fruit, and dried herbs balanced by silky tannins and lifting acidity. Rated 90+ points or higher for the last five consecutive vintages.Winery Notes

Faust:
A decade after the first release from his Quintessa estate, Agustin Huneeus felt the thrill and excitement of a new endeavor beckon. The underlying premise for all of the wines he has ever produced has been that great wines must be a reflection of a great vineyard. Faust is not.

A decade after the first release from his Quintessa estate, Agustin Huneeus felt the thrill and excitement of a new endeavor beckon. The underlying premise for all of the wines he has ever produced has been that great wines must be a reflection of a great vineyard. Faust is not. Instead, Faust is a tribute to Napa Valley’s noblest grape—full-bodied, decadently rich and unctuous Cabernet Sauvignon. Faust also honors the legend of Dr. Faust, a scholar and respected man of society who was tempted by the Devil to seek new renewed passion and youth in exchange for his soul. Faust is indeed the fruit of renewed passion for Agustin, though Mephistopheles has not yet appeared to claim his soul. To capture the complexity and diversity of the Napa Valley, Agustin takes bold and beautiful fruit from Quintessa that doesn’t fit his famous meritage blend’s elegant and finessed profile, and complements it with fruit from his vineyard in Napa’s up and coming Coombsville region and small lots of grapes that come form some of the valley’s best mountain and valley vineyards, from St. Helena to Yountville.

Faust is blended (92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot) of the best wines not used in 'Quintessa Estate' in Rutherford. The Quintessa Estate is known for their singular great wine: Quintessa, so Faust is not what they consider a second wine. The Estate was planted to five classic Bordeaux red grapes in 1990; Cabernet Sauvignon; Merlot; Cabernet Franc; Petit Verdot and Carmenere. Prior to 1990 the land had never been planted to vines; quite unusual for such a prestigious Rutherford site.

Intense, with firm tannins wrapped around a core of spicy currant and black cherry fruit. Ends with a stripped taste. Chalky. Drink now through 2012.
