Faust Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec, 1% Cabernet Franc. Bright, smooth, and rich ruby color with captivating aromas of black currant, red cherry, and spice are lifted out of the glass. The wine is inviting with a supple mouth-feel and notes of cassis, dark chocolate and ripe berries. The layers of complexity continue to develop throughout a silky finish. Drink: 2014-2020. Barrel aged 19 months in 100% French oak (30% new). Alcohol 14.2%.

Faust:
A decade after the first release from his Quintessa estate, Agustin Huneeus felt the thrill and excitement of a new endeavor beckon.

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.
