Natalie's Score: 93/100

Faust 2018 is the Devil-may-care 1500 ml size of this full-bodied Cabernet Sauvignon-driven red blend with Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. All the grapes are sourced from the Coombsville wine region. Broody as always, but rich with ripe blackberry, cassis, sous bois, cedar spice, black olive and wild herb flavours fresh with food-friendly acidity on the palate. Tannins are structured and fine. Pour with a well-marbled beef steak from the grill or roast beef dinner. Drink or hold.

Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: pork roast, vegetarian stew, slow-roasted beef long ribs.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
