Bright, smooth, and rich ruby color with captivating aromas of black currant, red cherry, and spice are lifted out of the glass. The wine is inviting with a supple mouth-feel and notes of cassis, dark chocolate and ripe berries. The layers of complexity continue to develop throughout a silky finish.
Faust is a tribute to Napa Valley’s noblest grape – full-bodied, decadently rich and unctuous Cabernet Sauvignon. To express the complexity of the grape and diversity of the Napa Valley, Faust seeks Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from Agustin’s family vineyards in Rutherford and Coombsville, Napa Valley’s newest appellation located in the eastern foothills south of Atlas Peak. Agustin’s relationships with growers in other appellations, such as Yountville, Mount Veeder, St. Helena and Rutherford, round out the blend with small lots from these spectacular mountain and valley terroirs.
Faust also honors the legend of Dr. Faust, a scholar and respected man of society who was tempted by the devil to seek renewed passion and youth in exchange for his soul. Faust is indeed the fruit of renewed passion for Agustin, though Mephistopheles has not yet appeared to claim his soul.
