Faust The Pact 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
Wine AdvocateA barrel sample, the deep garnet-purple colored 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon The Pact features a deep garnet-purple color and youthful aromas of blueberries, crushed black cherries and blackcurrants with subtle notions of dried herbs, menthol and mocha. Full-bodied and bursting with black fruit flavor, it has a firm, chewy backbone and just enough freshness, finishing with lingering spicy notes.
Wine EnthusiastFrom the exciting appellation that is Coombsville, this wine starts with beautiful aromas of violet and clove before opening up on the palate to a generous array of blackberry, plum and black pepper. Full bodied, it shows elegance and a sense of balance that holds up through a lengthy finish.
