Within the gentle slopes of our Faust estate vineyard in the new Coombsville AVA, several distinctive blocks captivated our imagination with their intense, flavorful fruit. Intrigued by the structure and depth provided by these vines, we began to explore ways to elevate their beauty and richness by complementing them with handpicked selections from high quality vineyards in Rutherford, Mt. Veeder, Atlas Peak and other parts of Napa Valley. …and so The Pact was born - a delicious interplay of dark and decadent fruit from our Faust estate with rich and luscious flavors brought by other unique Napa vineyards. The result is a deeply beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon that is an intriguing exploration of contrast and harmony, of nuance and complexity.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 The Pact is Cabernet Sauvignon from primarily Coombsville and Rutherford, but some other small lots are in the blend, according to winemaker Charles Thomas, who has an impressive resumé, having worked at Rudd Estate as well as Robert Mondavi. The wine ratchets up the levels of richness, displaying a deep purple color and notes of pen ink, crème de cassis and vanilla in a medium to full-bodied, impressive style. It is meant to be drunk now and over the next 15 or so years.
