Faust is crafted at the Quintessa winery in Rutherford, a state-of-the-art winery with the most modern technologies. The grapes are hand-picked, double-sorted, gently crushed and fermented in stainless steel and French oak fermentation tanks. After cold-soak and fermentation, the must undergoes a maceration period that can last up to three weeks. Critical flavor, aroma and color compounds are extracted at this phase. The wine is then transferred to French oak barrels for an aging period of 19 months. -
My Tasting Notes:
Super jammy on the nose with some cocoa, black cherry and just lusciously thick. Lots of fruit and mid palate is kinda grippy. The wine does open up over time to be a lot smoother. This is a great cab. Big, juicy and meaty!
