Stag's Leap FAY Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
In the nose, the wine is like a lush garden scented by ripe berry, cassis and crushed violets. A honeyed texture luxuriously flavored by currant and black cherry is embroidered by French oak accents. Flavors recede slowly over a framework of gentle tannins. This is the wine to accompany grilled rib-eye steaks served in Cabernet butter or a Gruyère and herb soufflé.
Professional ReviewJames Suckling: 95 Points
Concentrated, with lots of black and purple fruit and crushed violets. Broodingly dark and youthful at this stage, but remains elegant. Fleshy, dense and full-bodied with a mouthful of finely polished tannins that dissipate into the black fruit. Silky, opulent texture here, with fresh, medium acidity.Wine Spectator: 93 Points
Packed with bramble, blackberry and black currant pâte de fruit notes, this has good energy, while lacings of licorice and mocha fill out the finish. Lots of immediate appeal here, but there's no rush.
