- When looking for that special wine this holiday season, whether for a gift, special occasion, or purely for the sake of enjoying by the fire, look no further than Faust – an absolute exemplary Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Cabernet Sauvignon in its truest of forms, this is Napa Valley’s most noble grape at its peak – rich, unctuous, full-bodied & complex.

Crafted at the state-of-the-art Quintessa winery in Rutherford, quality is at the forefront of every step in the winemaking process. This benchmark Napa Cab is a wonderful wine to drink now and a great addition to any cellar!

The current vintage at the LCBO is priced at $59.95 (LCBO#238261), recently receiving 94 points from James Suckling

“Very attractive aromas of blackcurrants, black olives and dark leather with some cedar. It’s full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and a refined, polished finish. Shows finesse and focus. Grows on the palate. Really delicious now, but will improve with age. Drink or hold.”

bard - Rogco WinesThe Bard – Cabernet Coonawarra is renowned as one of Australia’s finest wine regions, particularly known for producing world class Cabernet Sauvignon. The rich red terra rossa limestone soil, along with a long ripening season produces grapes which are capable of creating wines of elegance and longevity.

“The 2019 ‘The Bard’ Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of fresh blackberries and dark plums come together with Asian spices, vanilla bean, florals and hints of tobacco all coming together in the glass. Full-bodied and well balanced through the finish.” 90 points, International Wine Report
