Deep ruby red. Dark and tight on the nose. Dark cocoa, dark red berries, and solid structure on the palate. Moderate tannins (6/10) and medium bodied. This just seems like a baby that needs some time to open up. Drink from 2019 till 2025.

A classic Bordeaux style blend, (older vintages omitted Petit Verdot). Aged for 19 months in French Oak. Deep purple, aromas of fresh berry fruits with cedar and spice. On the palate cherry, blackberry, plum and blueberry fruit, sweet and savory oak notes. Drinking well for a 2014, needs decanting or about 10 years in cellar. Tannins were smooth and firm, with leather & cacao on the long finish. Faust wines do not disappoint, even when young. Nice! A Fav!

Great recommendation by our server. Full bodied cab, beautiful aroma, pairs really well with steak. It also doesn’t need time to air out, can be enjoyed immediately.

I drink a lot of good Cabs and this vineyard is generally not what I’ve considered in the category I typically drink. I mean the price for the quality has been dubious, nevertheless I enjoyed this bottle and rate it as a good Cab to my surprise.
