Tasting Notes

“The Pact 2019 lives up to Faust legend with beautiful dark blueberry and blackberry aromas over layers of crushed- rock minerality, haunting forest notes and hints of violet. With the texture of velvet-luxuriously dense-the palate wraps that core of blue and back fruit with the barest edge of bright cherry spiced with star anise and savory dried tarragon. Silky tannins and generous ripe fruit linger through an endless, vibrant finish. There’s a long life ahead for this Cabernet.”

“The Coombsville AVA is Napa Valley’s southernmost growing region for Cabernet Sauvignon, and our estate was among it’s first vineyards planted in 1998.  Nestled into the rocky ruins of an ancient caldera, volcanic soils and marine breezes from the nearby San Pablo Bay combine to offer polish and structure alongside consistent Napa ripeness.  It is a special corner of Napa that allows us to fully express the land as we continue to pursue our craft of perfecting a modern classic.”

94 Points Wine Enthusiast – “A 100% varietal wine is from the producer’s estate vineyard, one of first planted in the region. Earthy sage, blueberry and blackberry contrast against mineral-flecked notes of crushed rock, black olive, tobacco and sage. The tannins present as velvety and lengthy, with a concentrated density and finishing note of clove.”

93 Points Wine Spectator – “Leads with a bright savory edge, followed quickly by a wave of dark fig, blackberry and açaí berry flavors. Subtle alder and chaparral notes add nice lift through the finish. Best from 2023 through 2034. 2,500 cases made.”

93 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate – “Scents of charred wood and scorched coffee mark the nose of Faust’s 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon The Pact. Those elements are backed by notes of plum, cassis and blackberries. It’s full-bodied and dark-fruited, but there’s still a sense of freshness here, expressed in part as a vibrant, mouthwatering finish with soft tannins.”
