"Faust is the epitome of the style that has made Napa Cabernet Sauvignon world renowned: bold and powerful, yet elegant and concentrated. Dense and inky, the core is a beautiful, rich ruby color. The aromas lift out of the glass with blackberry, black cherry, ripe raspberry and tea leaf. The entry is impressive with a fleshy mouthfeel and notes of cassis, dark chocolate and ripe berries. The layers continue to unfold throughout a long finish." —winemaker

Wine Anthology review:
Faust is made at Agustin Huneeus' Quintessa winery as a sort of "second wine" to the premium Quintessa, and is even made by the same winemaker, Charles Thomas. The 2012 Faust is composed of Cabernet blended with splashes of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and Petit Verdot purely to temper the Cab boldness, all working together as a harmonious team. Aromas of ripe blackberry, currant, and unsmoked tobacco come barreling out of the gate and lead on to a smooth-textured mouthfeel that puts the fruit front and center.
"The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Faust is designed as a second wine so that only the top lots end up in the Quintessa. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, sweet crème de cassis fruit, chocolate, licorice and underbrush characteristics in a delicious, fruit-forward, open-knit style. Enjoy it over the next decade or more." —Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
