Pale Victoria plum in colour with a mahogany rim and complex aromas of plums and raspberries combined with hints of cedar, vanilla and spice. This wine is smooth and velvety on the palate with excellent integration of Christmas cake fruits and spicy with a hint of vanilla on the finish. This complexity and harmony results from the prolonged ageing in both barrel and bottle with 26 months spent in a combination of French and American oak and at least 3 years in bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from cellent This wine is a superb full bodied red that in my opinion, is superior to many wines that are double & even triple the price. Highly recommended and well worth the cost.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love Faustino but disappointed with this 2004 Not sure what is going on here but the Faustino 1 - 2001 was fantastic and well worth the money. This 2004 vintage is a mediocre wine at best and not worth the twelve pounds being asked for it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some good, some bad. I ordered and paid for 12 bottles of Faustino 1 2001 vintage. I received 6 bottles of the 2001 vintage and 6bottles of the 200 vintage with no explanation. I can only assume that the people who completed the order did not understand wine vintages and therefore some additional training is required. I like the 2001 vintage but am scared to buy some more in case(no pun intended) I receive a wine/vintage I have not ordered.
