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.

  • We enjoyed Saturday evening with our friends Greg and Beth.  I was our ... list - the 2011 Faust Cabernet Sauvignon.  This was a decent wine but it could have used a few more years to age.  We enjoyed it with our steaks and I even had a Grappa to finish off the meal. You might notice some high prices on the few portions of the wine list that I ...

    Snoothrank:

    Impressive right out of the gate! Perfect acid balance; beautiful nose of petrol, resin, honey and some floral notes. Sappy with lots of extract. Starts to fall apart with much air so it will not age more than another year. A great vintage and this wine reflects that. My rating 91-92 Read More

  • Hey everyone, what are some of your favorite 'everyday' or M-F types of wines to accompany a regular dinner?  I personally have enjoyed the Montoya Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa, and I usually pick it up from Total Wines out here in Virginia.  This is one of those fruit-forward cabs that isn't too complex for me to appreciate, and it usually cost...
