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.

“The Pact comprises carefully selected fruit from some of the best parcels across our Coombsville Estate. The position  of these sites within the caldera play an essential role in shaping the highly nuanced character of this wine. The polished expression of black currant and blue fruits are balanced alongside fine tannins and elevated acidity. ” – David Jelinek, Winemaker

 

95 Points

“Very fine tannins with lead-pencil and currant flavors. Full-bodied, tight and focused. Ripe and polished tannins. Extremely long and flavorful. Shows tension and freshness. Hard not to drink now.”
