A pure expression of our Coombsville Estate vineyard.

The Coombsville AVA is both the newest in Napa Valley and the furthest south. The region benefits from marine breezes coming off the nearby San Pablo Bay, as well as a long and cool growing season due to its location in the valley. This extended ripening period gives The Pact its signature silkiness, unmistakable blue and black fruit and pronounced acidity.

Carefully selected from the premier blocks of the property that sit on an elevated bench with volcanic soils underneath, this Cabernet Sauvignon captures what makes the Coombsville AVA special. 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.

“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…”

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate | December 2018

“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…”
