Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Flamboyant and concentrated red in an old school way. Full-bodied and very velvety. Big and juicy. Needs time to soften and come together but some may like its full-throttle style now.
The Faust 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon comes largely from vineyards in southern Napa Valley's Coombsville and Atlas Peak, but also includes some cross-AVA material from areas such as Yountville, Mt. Veeder, St. Helena and Rutherford. It is a well-made, ripe, concentrated, deep ruby/purple-colored Cabernet Sauvignon with sweet tannin, an attractive, cedary, licorice-infused aromatic and flavor profile, medium to full body and supple tannins. It seems to be the most drinkable and up-front of the Faust wines.
