1990 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Fay

Wine Description

(From 1997 Vintage) Concentarated fruit aromas and flavors.Fay wines are perfumed by radiant berry characteristics, whose flavors reveal themselves like the mysterious characters they are. The aromas are lavish, evocative of ripe loganberry, black currant, crushed lavender and French vanilla bean. A supple entry of resonating fruit, spice, oak highlights and tannins caress the tongue after the wine is swallowed, creating pure enchantment.Wine Spectator 92 points

Winemaker's Notes

(From 2009 Vintage) This wine opens with generous aromas of bright raspberry, sandalwood, vanilla and anise along with the signature bright cherry note of the vineyard. The aromas are followed by an alluring mix of red cherry, blueberry and tangerine that envelop the palate with nuances of vanilla and spice from careful aging in French oak barrels. The palate is lush with ripe tannins, balanced acidity and a persistent berry/cherry finish.
