Nice dark fruit up front but this wine is overpowered by tanin on the finish. Letting it sit a while will definitely help. Will be interesting to see how this ages over the years

At 30 minutes, the nose is rich with sweet cherry and whiffs of spring florals. At the same time, the palate is spicy and structured and nicely framed, though the wine begins to fall apart after an hour and a half, leaving a juicy center and intermittent pops of pepper and spice, but without broad structure. The wine reduces over time to a thinner version of itself, with the structure and acidity dropping out more and more at two hours and beyond.

(83% cabernet sauvignon, 13% merlot and the rest cabernet franc, petit verdot and malbec; made mostly from non-estate fruit): Good bright, deep red. Cool aromas of black cherry, licorice, tobacco and tar. The palate shows a restrained sweetness to the flavors of cherry, spices and loam (I got a note of Rutherford dust here). Broad and fairly full, finishing with substantial tongue-dusting tannins and a slight dryness. Rough-hewn, dense and chewy, with a strong herbal presence mixed with drying sage, dark berry and underbrush notes. Rustic and rugged from start to finish. Drink now through 2018. 17,404 cases made. -JL This is less ripe compared to many other Napa Cabernets, and it deals dry flavors of tobacco, herb, blackberry and currant. It's pretty tannic, which gives it some toughness that is unrelieved by richness. - S.H.

The 2009 Faust is a benchmark example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine opens with aromas of red and black cherries, ripe raspberry, hints of violets and a lovely perfume. A lush, full entry on the palate with blackberry, cassis, coffee and dark chocolate flavors leads to a rich, supple mouthfeel. A complex finish with dark fruit lingers in the mouth. The wine continually evolves in the glass, making it worthy of another taste. - WineryCOMPOSITION85% Cabernet Sauvignon9% Merlot3% Cabernet Franc3% MalbecALCOHOL14.2% by volumeAGING19 months in 100% French oak, 30% new ** SOLD OUT **

The wine opens with aromas of red and black cherries, hints of violets and warm spices. A lush, full entry on the palate with blackberry, cassis, nutmeg and dark chocolate flavors leads to a plush, supple mouthfeel. A complex finish lingers with dark fruit and plenty of richness.

Classic Napa Valley red fruit in the nose, also aromas of creme brulee, orange and walnuts. Dense and rich with tightly wound finish. Good weight, great length and firm tannins.
