Faust Cabernet Sauvignon - cabernet sauvignon rated 90

Faust Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
Blackberry, blackcurrant, graphite and tar aromas. Crushed stone, too. Full-bodied, yet firm, fresh and bright with a creamy, crunchy finish. One of the best values in Napa appellation designated reds. Drink or hold. 
-- James Suckling, 95/100

DAOU Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

Joseph Phelps Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
This wine is lovely in juicy red fruit, dried herb and hints of allspice, the tannin structure firm and giving. Offering refinement and structure, it shows nuances of black currant, cherry and toasted oak. This will do well in the cellar; enjoy best from 2029–2034. VIRGINIE BOONE.
-- Wine Enthusiast, 94/100

Stags Leap Cabernet Sauvignon

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon

Cassis, dried blueberries, violets, ink, graphite, dried leaves and cigar box on the nose. Full-bodied with firm, polished tannins. Smooth and supple with excellent balance and length. Drink from 2023.

-- James Suckling, 93/100

J Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon

J. Lohr Hilltop Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

This is one of the more widely available Cabs in American restaurants, and yet manages to be thoroughly enjoyable despite the large production amounts. Blackberry, violet, warm fudge and loamy soil aromas kick off the nose, and then the palate is enveloped in polished yet expansive tannins. Flavors of black currant, vanilla and anise float through the sip.

-- Wine Enthusiast, 93/100

Frank Family Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

Frank Family Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon

The base appellation 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon (which includes 2% Petit Verdot and 2% Merlot) is a terrific value, offering loads of blue and black fruits as well as notes of tobacco, candied violets, Asian spices, and sandalwood. Medium to full-bodied, with rock-solid overall balance, ripe yet integrated tannins, and a great finish, this is a classic, well-made Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon to enjoy over the coming 10-12 years.

-- Jeb Dunnuck, 90/100

Sequoia Grove Winery – Napa Valley Cabernet & Chardonnay

Sequoia Grove Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Plums, currants, stones, sage and walnut husks on the nose. Some toffee and mocha. Medium- to full-bodied with polished tannins. Creamy finish.

-- James Suckling, 92/100

Orin Swift Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon

Orin Swift Cellars Mercury Head Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (1.5LTR)

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Mercury Head has a deep garnet-purple color and needs a little swirling to unlock classic notes of ripe blackcurrants, warm plums and cedar chest with hints of wild sage, violets, Sichuan pepper and fallen leaves. The full-bodied palate has firm and grainy tannins with a lively backbone and tightly knit black fruits, finishing long and savory.
-- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 96/100

Wines | Buena Vista Winery

Buena Vista Chateau Buena Vista Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2019

Ripe-berry and walnut aromas with cedar and spice, following through to a full body with creamy, polished tannins and a juicy finish. Dusty and firm at the end. Better in a year or two.
-- James Suckling, 92/100
