Faust The Pact Napa Valley 2019

Categories , ,

It’s hard not to love just about everything that comes from Hunneus Wines. First, a few weeks back we offered Leviathan. Then, we had a rare allocation of Quintessa. Both at exceptional prices. But those offers pale in comparison to today’s final act, a two-for-one offer of “Baby Quintessa”, from project Faust, priced to be scooped up by the case.

The winemaking team at Faust is ridiculous. Similar to the team at Quintessa (Michel Rolland/Andy Erickson) minus Rebekah Wineburg but with Charles Thomas (Opus One) and David Jelinek (Copain/Prisoner/Groth). The vineyard source out of this world – a little slice of heaven on the foothills of Atlas Peak in Coombsville. The wine is aged and bottled at Quintessa’s state-of-the-art winemaking facility.

Both have all the vineyard pedigree and winemaking prowess of Quintessa. They receive the big scores (Faust- 95pts, The Pact 96pts) and all the press of their big name brother, but at prices that Napa almost never sees anymore for wines of this caliber. And the best part, I’m able to offer these at the best prices anywhere – for as long as they last.

Original price was: $150.00.Current price is: $119.00.

96 Points, James Suckling
Redcurrants and blackcurrants with some violets and crushed earth. Full-bodied with round, creamy tannins. Fine, velvety tannins that are open and grounded. Firm and tight finish. Drinkable now, but better in 2024.

96 Pts, James Suckling

‘The Pact’ is the small-production flagship bottling from Faust Wines.  Always a wine that overdelivers in value, but in Napa’s excellent 2019, superstar consultant Michel Rolland turned in an absolute beauty. Packed with vibrant Atlas Peak fruit, this Big Boy has a ton of energy for sure, blasting out of the bottle with dark currants and rich black fruits. This one has exceptional structure with finely layered grainy tannins. A hint of dark chocolate and cinnamon round out a supple and smooth finish. This is a straight up steal at this price!
