Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 750mL 95 Points: James Suckling Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 vintage is a full-throttled Cabernet Sauvignon blended with Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot. Aged for 19 months in 100% French oak, it offers nuance and silky tannins and notes of juicy blackberry, black cherry, and plum.
95 Points: James Suckling
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.
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.
