First time I have this wine. Impressed! It is very powerful. You can taste the wood. Good with strong cheeses and meat with fat. Outstanding. (Yes I don’t use normal wine nomenclature ☺️)

Ohh very high tannins c6/c10. What Faustino I used to be before they softened it for the US market. Very strong complex and woody. Outstanding wine

Terrible. Tasted like wash water. No idea what happened. I have had this wine many times and has always been good. This one was terrible.

Good. Well done. But a bit more into the California Chardonnay than Viogner.

An outstanding wine. High in tannins like they use to make them (and still do in Europe). 1982 was a truly exceptional year for Faustino Perfect with heavy meat and grease, very strong and high body and extremely complex.

Highest rating I’ve given for a red wine and I suspect I am 15-20 years early. High tannins, strong flavor, perfect with an awesome filet.

Interesting wine, the color connotes sweet tones but it is very dry with a subtle aftertaste more similar to dry sherry than wine. Hard to pin down the fruit tho dry prunes come to mind with the tartness (not the flavor), of a Granny Smith. Good wine.
