Nice wine for the bucks. Their older vintages expressed more handcrafting....

After having the ‘16, I went back to my notes on the ‘15 and they mirror exactly what I was writing for the ‘16. Nose was more floral than jammy, with violets, blackberries, nutmeg and some blueberries. Well balanced and approachable on the palate, with a nice black cherry/blueberry finish. The ‘16 had a bit more complexity with added cedar/birch wood notes too. The ‘15 and ‘16 are their best wines to date in my opinion, and wonderful values at around $45/bottle.

Layered aromas of black cherry, cocoa and spice that evolved into a pretty closed off and simple flavor profile. Still needs time to open up.

Best Faust example I’ve tried, in a beautiful limited release magnum. Initially over-licoriced and tannic, it took only 15 min decant to sort out. Silky smooth, dark red fruit and drying tannins in a sleek package. Nice. The ‘15 (from a 750) was a notch better.
