The Pact

"Nothing is worth more than this day." — Faust (Goethe)


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.

  • Had the wine with dinner at Flemings Steak House. Pleasantly surprised with this amazing wine. One of the best Cabs I've tried in memory. Very smooth and silky with a great finish. A definite recommend if you have the opportunity to try it.
