|The 2008 Faust is a worthy successor to the highly lauded
2007 vintage in Napa Valley. The wine opens with aromas of
red and black cherries, hints of violets and warm spices.
A lush, full entry on the palate with blackberry, cassis,
nutmeg and dark chocolate flavors leads to a plush,
supple mouthfeel. A complex finish lingers
with dark fruit and plenty of richness.
