Faust The Pact 2018
|California, Napa Valley, Coombsville
Distinctive, with a well-defined mix of açaí berry, plum and blueberry fruit that has a cool and fresh feel, while racy graphite, dark earth, tobacco and violet accents fill in the background. Structured and energetic through the finish, with the fruit-earth interplay showing nice persistence. Best from 2021 through 2031. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 2,200 cases made.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon The Pact opens with notions of tar, damp soil and new leather over a core of warm cassis, blueberries and black raspberries. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is fresh and pure with soft tannins and lovely brightness, finishing with a peppery kick.
