Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 Wine

Faust

750 ml | 12.5% ABV
Wine

At our estate vineyard in Coombsville, Napa’s newest AVA, grapes are challenged throughout a long, cool growing season.
Both the newest in Napa Valley and the furthest south, Coombsville benefits from ancient volcanic soils, marine breezes coming off the nearby San Pablo Bay, as well as a long and cool growing season due to its location in the valley.

Located just east of the town of Napa, close to the bay, Coombsville is a physically cooler region. In the early days, many thought it was too cold to grow cabernet there, considering it to be primarily chardonnay country, but some visionaries planted anyway. Besides being the latest-to-ripen vines in Napa, the soil profiles are very different given it’s closer to the Vaca Mountain range, so there is a lot of eroded volcanic soil, which means, lots of minerals in the soil.

In Napa Valley you get more red fruit, more spice. The tannins can be a bit more rustic. Down in Coombsville you get more intense color, a blue-black fruit profile. A brighter acidity and minerality in the wines. Coombsville is just very unique.

In 1998 the Huneeus family found this property, fell in love with it and saw the potential. A never-planted before, former dairy farm, the Lewis Dairy, in Coombsville had many of the distinct elements that are a signature of the Huneeus estates—beautiful creeks, native trees, teeming with wildlife, an island. The property embodies all the unique attributes of a world-class estate – diversity of soil, elevation, exposition and climate, all in one single estate.This was destined be the vineyard source for an exceptional wine.

Durant and Booth Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Wine 2020

Durant and Booth

750 ml | 14.5% ABV
Wine | Cabernet Sauvignon

In 1897, Frederick Durant and Willis and Joseph Booth formed a partnership and took over the Oakville Mercantile & General Store at the Oakville Crossroads. By 1904, the sale of the store and the Victorian home was finalized and Durant and Joseph Booth moved in. Over the next several years, they transformed the destination into a grocery store for the Napa Valley. Today, the historic family home stands at the gateway of one of the unsurpassed wine regions of the world and the home is one of the finest homes from the era.

THE VINTAGE
2020 kicked off with ideal growing conditions. Mild temperatures led to evenly developed clusters and an early budbreak was followed by a warm to hot summer. Low winter rains resulted in smaller berries with concentrated flavors. Harvest started in early August and all things pointed to normal yields and exceptional fruit quality.

WINEMAKER’S NOTES
Harvested in the cool morning hours from valley floor vineyards across Napa Valley, the grapes were hand sorted and underwent extended maceration before aging in a combination of bourbon and American oak barrels. Bourbon barrels have a heavier toast which imparts a light smoky note on the nose and highlights the characteristics that are synonymous with the spirit. The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon is deep, dark red in the glass and opens with aromas dark cherry and plum that spring from the glass. This is a full-bodied wine, filled with flavors of blackberry, cherry, caramel and spice. Aged in Bourbon barrels, flavors of brown sugar, sweet vanilla, baking spice and hints of toasted oak are textured throughout the palate. Balanced with fine-grained tannins, the finish is long and smooth.
