92 points James Suckling: "Plenty of blackcurrants and blueberries with licorice, as well as mint, following through to a medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Shows polish and focus. 89% cabernet sauvignon and 11% malbec. Drinkable now, but better in a year or two. (2/14/20)"

91 points and 'Very highly recommended,' California Grapevine: "Medium to medium-dark ruby; attractive, rich, fragrant, dark cherry and blackberry fruit aroma with hints of cassis, spice box, and green olive; full body; forward, rich, ripe, fleshy, cedary, red and black fruit flavors with a hint of mocha and a plush mouthfeel; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. 14.9% alcohol; blended with a 21% mix of Merlot, Cabernet Franc, and PV; released July 2019. (Mar 2020)"

Producer notes: "The 2017 Faust Cabernet is a blend of our estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford and mountain sourcing in Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. Intense yet fresh with juicy blue and black notes. Notes of dark chocolate and dried herbs seduce the palate while silky tannins and lifting acidity leads to a layered and lingering finish."
