95 Points, James Suckling
From the outstanding winemaking team of Michel Rolland, Charles Thomas, Andy Erickson and David Jelenik comes the Faust Napa Valley Cabernet. Always one of the best QPR Cabernets Napa has to offer, the 2019 received this wines’ highest score to date. That could have been one of two things: 1. 2019 was an exceptional vintage in Napa that produced beautiful fresh and lively fruit that is drinking wonderfully in its youth. 2. The 2019 Faust bottling is a racy mix of Coombsville fruit from Atlas Peak that absolutely roars out of the bottle. Either way, this is truly one of Napa’s great bargains and a must have at this price.
