In 1997, Agustin Huneeus purchased 110 acres in Southern Napa and planted Cabernet Sauvignon, over a decade before Coombsville became Napa’s newest AVA (2011).
This vineyard became the home for Faust and the core of Faust’s style of Cabernet. Several distinctive blocks within the slopes of the eastern portion of the vineyard captivated us with their intense, flavorful fruit.
In 2007, Faust decided to keep those blocks separate and bottle them into a limited release called The Pact.
The Pact honors the Faustian contract with the devil.
Distinct blocks of Coombsville vineyard, located in the eastern foothills south of Atlas Peak. Coombsville is Napa’s newest appellation and Faust’s home vineyard. The marine breeze from nearby San Pablo Bay provides a cooler climate than Napa’s northern appellations allowing for slow, even ripening which results in excellent structure, dark fruit character and layered complexity.
