FAUST WINES, SALVATION
NAPA VALLEY, CALIFORNIA 2014
A decade after introducing the wine world to the ultra-premium winery Quintessa, Chilean born vintner Agustin Huneeus gave us Faust – and we’re certainly glad he did. Designed as a second wine, Faust is in fact made at Quintessa by the same winemaker and in recent years, has truly come into its own. Throughout his career, Augustin has produced wines with the intent of showcasing the vineyards, however, the premise behind Faust was to ultimately showcase Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley. As one of the best Cabernets Napa Valley has to offer, this wine is decadently rich, hedonistic, and ready to drink now but can be enjoyed for decades to come. Today we’re thrilled to offer Faust’s newly-released bottling of their 2014 Salvation, a special project that showcases their passion and spirit of innovation that continues to push the envelope in Napa winemaking.
Salvation is a limited release Cabernet red wine produced by the winemaking team behind Faust. Intrigued with making a red blend in the same style as Faust Cabernet, winemaker David Jelenick and General Manager Jen Beloz blended Syrah and Merlot from their estate Coombsville vineyard with Cabernet Sauvignon from mountainside vineyards on Atlas Peak and Howell Mountain to craft a one-of-a-kind red wine. They chose to name their project Salvation, which literally means “the act of saving” to honor this outstanding Cabernet, Syrah and Merlot that they felt compelled to highlight in this passion project.
Truly hand-crafted, David and Jen aged Salvation for 22 months in 30% new French Oak and produced just 755 cases. The wine begins with notes of baking spices and cocoa powder, with opulent aromas of star anise and forest floor. The lush palate is framed by notes of blackberry and cherry, with a supple structure and elegant finish. This is an extraordinary opportunity to own a rare and exclusive Napa Valley wine. For one week, we’re offering up to 20% off 750ml and 6L bottles!
