2015 Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1345177 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A dense yet fresh red with a blueberry and blackberry character and hints of tobacco and dark chocolate. Light bitterness adds to the complexity on the palate. Layered and beautiful. Juicy fruit at the finish. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (5/2018)

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A barrel sample, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep garnet-purple colored, with a decadent cassis, baked blackberries and plum preserves-scented nose, plus hints of spice cake, cedar and Marmite toast. Full-bodied, rich, concentrated and wonderfully spicy in the mouth, it has velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing long. (LPB) Inner quote mark (10/2017)

92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Brooding and shy on the nose, this has a good portion of mountain fruit from Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain - predominantly Cabernet with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. The body is full, the fruit is generous, and the alcoholic warmth is palpable. This is a big wine playing on ripe tannins and strength, but underneath all of that are some lovely cinnamon, blueberry and baked plum flavours - a promise for the future. Drinking Window 2025-2035. (AK) Inner quote mark (5/2018)

A serious contender for best sub-$50 Napa Cabernet in the store. For those of you that don't know this is part of the Quintessa stable. Made from Rutherford and Coombsville estate fruit plus select parcels of mountain fruit to bolster the structure beneath layer upon layer of rich, dark fruit. This wine massively over delivers in every way. Best release yet from Faust.

The 2015 offering from Faust is powerful and bold with fruit from estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford as well as sourcing from Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. This is a real bargain considering the fruit sourcing from these highly acclaimed Napa sub-regions. If full-bodied, intense Napa Cabernets are your thing, I would't pass up Faust's Cab.
