Review: 2014 Faust Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

Review: 2014 Faust Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley

This is a glorious expression of Faust’s Napa-sourced cabernet, oh-so-drinkable with lush notes of blueberry, dusky blackberry, and baking spice layered atop a core of molten chocolate and vanilla candies. After several glasses (which are dangerously easy to consume) the palate gets a bit gummy, but that’s a small price to pay for a wine that showcases a beautiful balance and a gloriously rounded body. Prior encounters with Faust have been a bit weedy or overly tannic, but that’s not the case here. All told, this is easily my favorite release of the wine to date.
