Winemaker Notes

Black cherry and black currant generously welcome the nose and reward the palate with a plush texture and fresh acidity. Dark fruit and graphite, along with tobacco, cinnamon, star anise, and dark cocoa flavors await you with a seductive finish that lasts for an eternity.

Critical Acclaim

JS 96
James Suckling
This is very layered and beautiful with tannins that unfold horizontally and melt into the wine. So much subtle and complex currant and green-olive character with a hint of fresh tobacco.
RP 95
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon The Pact is made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 19 months in 50% new French oak. Deep garnet-purple colored, it reveals bold red and black currants scents with touches of crushed rocks, new leather, fried herbs, rose hip tea and wood smoke plus a hint of incense. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers and rock-solid structure of firm, ripe, grainy tannins framing the muscular fruit, finishing very long and mineral laced.
WW 93
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
COMMENTARY: The Pact 2016 by Faust is packed, juicy, and firm from start to finish. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits attractive black fruit and anise in its aromas and flavors. Pair it with lightly-seasoned, grilled beef. (Tasted: February 21, 2020, St. Helena, CA)
WS 92
Wine Spectator
Alluring, with sage and menthol notes inlaid seamlessly into a core of polished fig, blackberry and açaí berry reduction flavors. A smoldering tobacco hint emerges through the finish, adding cut and energy while leaving an old-school impression.

At Faust, we seek to express the complexity of Cabernet Sauvignon and the diversity of the Napa Valley by sourcing from our estate vineyards in Coombsville and Rutherford as well as from small lots on Atlas Peak, Mount Veeder and Howell Mountain. The culmination of these exceptional appellations results in a prodigious expression of Cabernet Sauvignon.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
