Drink now or cellar for up to 21 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

This handsome Cabernet Sauvignon is the flagship wine of FAUST, an ambitious winery founded by Valeria and Agustin Huneeus to showcase the brilliance of Napa’s diverse terroirs. Agustin is probably best known in Napa for founding the Quintessa winery in Rutherford. FAUST is centred around a 110-acre site in Coombsville which was bought by the family in 1998 and is predominantly planted with mature Cabernet and Merlot.

To craft this magnificent wine grapes are carefully selected from the highest elevation plots on the Coombsville estate which are vinified in individual lots in the winery. Conditions here are ideal for premium winemaking thanks to the rocky volcanic soils and cooling breezes from the nearby San Pablo Bay which retain plenty of aromatics and freshness in the grapes.

Once the vinification is complete the young wine is aged in French oak barrels for 19 months, integrating the unique components of the wine and bringing balance and harmony to the cuvee. The result is a powerful, full-throttled red that will benefit from several years more in the cellar thanks to the rigid tannins, firm structure and luscious dark fruit character. If you do choose to enjoy it now, pair with hearty dishes like barbecued ribs, a ribeye steak, or rich vegetarian dishes like aubergine parmigiana.
