Faust

Limited Release Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

A classic Bordeaux style blend dominated by 82% Cab Sauv with Merlot, Petit Verdot & Cab Franc from several estate vineyards. Aged for 19 months in 30% new French Oak. Deep Ruby, aromas of fresh berry fruits with cedar and spice. On the palate sweet blackberry and blueberry fruit, with savory oak & cacao notes. Smooth sweet tannins, savory, with an herb & mineral touch on the long finish. Nice! A Fav! Good value! Tasting Sample! — a year ago

Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

Blackberry, vegetal, herbal, with greenery. Some smokiness on the nose with black licorice. It's great to have an alternative of comparable quality to Napa Cabernet. In terms of $/points this punches way above its weight. To me, this is a very slightly better version of Faust Cab.

Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018

This is a tasty Napa Cabernet. Rich, extracted and elegant.

Showing blackberries, black currants, raisins, sweet cherries, chocolates, cedar, vanilla, coffee, earth, light vegetables, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Full-bodied and elegant with medium acidity.

Long finish with round tannins.

Needed a few hours of decanting, which I did not have at this time.

Still very young, but already enjoyable. Needs 3 years in the bottle to mature properly, and will age nicely in the next 10 years.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Excellent... But it's interesting to compare this to #1 tonight--- Faust..both 2016 Napa cabs. Faust was $52, Krug $29. So what's the difference? A lot, you be the judge if it's worth 23 bucks. Take the Faust, and remove the blackberry, leaving a greenish-pine alcohol warmed bouquet. Take the spherical mouth of Faust and shave it such that you have angular, sharp edges. Then Krug ends with a dryer, perfumed drying tannins.

So, this is an excellent wine, about 1.5 points below the Faust. So make your own calculation, but to me, I'd spend the money for the upgrade.
