This is firm and juicy yet generous and fruity at the same time. Has a plush and wild feel. Extremely savory. Flavorful finish. Drink now or hold. (5/2019)
93 points Wine Spectator
Lush and inviting, with cassis, creamed plum and boysenberry puree flavors gliding through on a very polished structure, while anise, mocha and tobacco accents check in on the finish. A seductive style. (JM) (5/2019)

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon is a blend of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon with smaller portions of Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot, aged for 19 months in 30% new French oak. The core of the fruit comes from the Coombsville estate blended with some mountain and valley floor fruit from elsewhere. Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, it offers a beautiful core of ripe blackcurrants, blackberries, and lavender with nuances of cedar chest, pencil lead and camphor plus a waft of tilled soil. Medium to full-bodied, the palate has a nice, firm backbone of ripe, grainy tannins and well-played freshness delivering a long, vibrant finish. (LPB) (12/2018)

Faust’s murals are peppered throughout the streets of New York, while his signature pieces adorn walls from Hong Kong to Moscow. His work is featured in the new book The Art of Writing Your Name and is currently on display in the inaugural exhibition at the Urban Nation Museum for Urban Contemporary Art in Berlin. The wine - At Faust we seek to express the complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon and the diversity of the Napa Valley by sourcing from estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford, as well as small lots from spectacular mountain AVAs such as Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. Uniting these disparate regions allowed us to create a rich, full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon that truly represents the soul of the grape."
