The 2015 Pact is a full-bodied, rich wine beginning with notes of dried savory herbs and freshly roasted coffee. Vibrant flavors of black cherry and red plum are balanced by spice notes of star anise, dark chocolate, cedar and slate. Plush tannins and a velvety soft texture lead to a complex and lingering finish.  WINERY

Fantastic blueberry and blackberry aromas. Black licorice and lead pencil. Graphite. Full body with very tight and focused tannins. A precise center palate that seduces with every sip. Love the walnuts, dark chocolate and dark fruit on the finish. Drink in 2020.  JAMES SUCKLING

A 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.  ROBERT PARKER'S WINE ADVOCATE

From 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.  WINE ENTHUSIAST

Reflecting the relative cool of Coombsville, this takes its time to develop from spicy, rooty flavors toward floral notes and an open, more welcoming character. The wine’s generosity comes forward with air, a dynamic play between fine red fruit above and earthy tannins underneath. Accessible now with time in a decanter, this is ready to greet anything meaty off the grill.  WINE & SPIRITS
