Faust Cabernet Sauvignon 2015, Napa Valley, USA
PRESS: James Suckling - 95 points. "A dense yet fresh red with a blueberry and blackberry character and hints of tobacco and dark chocolate. Light bitterness adds to the complexity on the palate. Layered and beautiful. Juicy fruit at the finish. Drink or hold."
