In the spirit of celebrating people who play by their own rules, we’re proud to partner with street artist Faust New York for the second year to bring our two art forms together and present a new limited-edition magnum of 2016 Faust Cabernet. Only 884 cases produced!
The 2016 Faust Cabernet is a blend of our estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford and mountain sourcing in Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. Intense yet fresh with juicy blue and black notes. Notes of dark chocolate and dried herbs seduce the palate while silky tannins and lifting acidity leads to a layered and lingering finish.

Aging & Composition
Aged in 100% French Oak (40% New) 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot
“The 2014 Leviathan is a big, juicy wine that will appeal to readers who enjoy flashy, extroverted reds. Copious red cherry jam, red plum, spice, vanilla and oak are pushed forward in this flamboyant, racy Cabernet Sauvignon based red. At $40 per bottle, the appropriately named Leviathan is one of the best values in California.”
The 2016 vintage is a fierce reminder of why we love what we do, as it extended a run of five remarkable vintages in the Napa Valley. Even temperatures throughout the growing season produced excellent clusters, resulting in a bold and powerful wine. Fans of the 2015 Faust will love the 2016, with notes of dark chocolate, blue and black fruit, and dried herbs balanced by silky tannins and lifting acidity.
The 2011 Pact is a blend of 87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Petit Verdot and 1% Merlot and was sourced from Coombsville in the eastern foothills south of Atlas Peak. It is Napa Valley’s newest appellation and Faust’s home vineyard location. The marine breeze from nearby San Pablo Bay provides a cooler climate allowing for slow, even ripening and an extended hang time which results in excellent structure, dark fruit character and layered complexity.
The Lure showcases fruit from Napa Valley’s legendary Stagecoach Vineyard, one of the most extreme terroirs in the region. The 2011 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and unveils aromas of red cherry, raspberry and blackberry with tobacco and cedar notes.
Contains (2) magnums (1.5L each) of the 2011 The Pact and The Lure in a beautiful, wood gift box.
Contains one (1) magnum (1.5L) each of the following vintages of Quintessa: 2009, 2010 and 2011. Limited availability.
2012 was an exceptional vintage with ideal weather conditions during key parts of the growing season. The year began with a moderate and dry spring followed by a classic Napa summer of warm days and cool nights. This weather put little pressure on the vines, allowing for idyllic bud break, balanced flowering, even fruit set, and perfect grapes.
Rarely do you find a wine that is seamless from start to finish. This wine entices with aromas of violets mingled with red and black fruit. On the palate, it is rich and concentrated, finishing with elegant well-balanced tannins. This is truly an exceptional wine from a textbook growing season.
“Outstanding…One of the strongest efforts to date from this winery” - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
