2016 FAUST NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Faust can be described as the next generation in classic Napa Valley Cabernet that’s a go-to on restaurant wine lists, in a similar way that old-school producers Heitz and Stags Leap have been for many years. Created in Quintessa’s state-of-the-art winery in Rutherford, Faust’s 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon has superior focus and unleashes a bounty of exquisite aromas infused with opulent black fruits, melted chocolate, graphite and crushed rock. Created from the winery’s estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford, combined with additions of Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain resulting in diverse flavors that continually unfurl new components with aeration. At under $50 per bottle this is absolutely one of Napa Valleys best values in Cabernet Sauvignon.
Pre-fermentation, the grapes are hand-sorted twice with full-attention to every detail. Optimizing technology, Quintessa uses a gravity-flow method where are grapes are gently crushed on the winery roof before making their way to the fermentation room below using the force of gravity. This provides a gentler, more grape friendly approach to winemaking and the results simply need to be tasted to be appreciated.
