The 2007 vintage of Faust delivers classic Napa Valley Cabernet aromas plush with blackberry, cassis, red plums and dark chocolate undertones. It makes a dramatic entry on the palate with abundant concentrated fruit and notes of coffee and cocoa. Balanced and complex, the rich and luxurious finish leaves you longing for another sip.
This young, still slightly rigid Cabernet has the makings of a very fine wine, and its keenly knit mix of dark fruit, sweet oak and briar puts it on the track to real success. It is nicely extracted and starts out with a supple note but gets a bit puckery and gives way to acid and drying tannins on the latter palate. It has the look of a wine that will age well, and we are comfortable in predicting that it will smooth out in five or six years.
