2017 FAUST NAPA VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON (1.5L) MAGNUM
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 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon has superior focus and unleashes a bounty of exquisite aromas infused with opulent black fruits, melted chocolate, graphite and crushed rock.
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.
