Aged for 22 months in 50% new French oak
Inspired by Goethe’s famous story, the team at Faust has sold its soul and poured its passion into crafting remarkable Cabernet Sauvignon. Faust’s Napa Valley Premiere Lot, Salvation, features a selection of the top blocks from the 2015 vintage. Salvation is sourced from the Faust Coombsville Home Vineyard, which was planted in 1999, over a decade before Coombsville became Napa Valley's newest appellation. Salvation, a Cabernet Sauvignon blend, includes 10% Syrah and 5% Merlot that integrate exceptionally well, creating a sinful wine.
