Intense and complex with red and black cherry, cassis,
black tea and earthy spice.
James Suckling 95 points - Very focused with bright fruit such as dark berry and dried strawberry. Floral undertones too. Full body, hints of dried spice, dried meat and a long finish. Drink now.
The Pact is sourced from Coombsville in the eastern foothills south of Atlas Peak. It is Napa Valley’s newest appellation and Faust’s home vineyard location. The marine breeze from nearby San Pablo Bay provides a cooler climate than Napa Valley’s more northern appellations allowing for slow, even ripening and an extended hang time which results in excellent structure, dark fruit character and layered complexity.
|The Pact honors one of the most famous agreements in literature – the pivotal moment when Dr. Faust trades his soul to satisfy his mortal desire for the beautiful maiden, Margarete, and his quest for renewed passion and youth. It also speaks to Agustin’s belief in Coombsville and all that it has to offer – power, complexity and elegance.
|Agustin Huneeus seeks Cabernet Sauvignon from his family-owned vineyards in Rutherford and Coombsville, plus
small lots from spectacular mountain and valley terroirs in Yountville, Mount Veeder, Atlas Peak and St. Helena.
