Good, solid everyday quaffer.
Bold fruits, combine with rugged tannins. Let this unfurl for a while longer. Is this from Quintessa?

Classic Bordeaux style blend from several estate vineyards. Aged for 19 months in French Oak. Deep Ruby with purple edges, aromas of fresh berry fruits with cedar and spice. On the palate sweet cherry, blackberry and blueberry fruit, with savory oak & cacao notes. Tannins were smooth but tight, with an earthy herb touch on the long finish. Faust wines do not disappoint, even when young. Nice! A Fav! Great Value!

Nice wine for the bucks. Their older vintages expressed more handcrafting....🤷🏽‍♂️

Sometimes you need a Napa Cab, great vintage, aged nicely, could've waited another 10 years, wild berries, tobacco, black olive, 2005

2014 vintage. Blend of valley floor (mostly Coombsville with Rutherford) and sourced fruit from mountain AVAs (Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder). Bold and powerful with juicy black fruits, slightly austere tannic structure and good length. Should age very well. Very good value for Napa standards.

Another vintage of yawn. Great nose but a short finish, black fruit, lots of green pepper and black tea. The alcohol is a little out of balance too. If it were $20 it would be fine. But it's not.

Quick finish, lacks bold bouquet, too watery. Enjoyable but save for less unimpressive use

Needs long lead time in decanter to open up. Once open, great dark fruit flavored with a note of cocoa on the long finish.
