- 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.”
