Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Estate Fay Cabernet Sauvignon

Wine Details

Wine Description

(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

    (1998 Vintage) 3% Merlot. This bottling has somewhat less stuffing than its sib- lings, but we prefer it marginally to the SLV because it is a little smoother and rounder in texture, and thus, it impresses as easier to drink. It is also a little less soft behind its moderately firming finishing tannins and comes across as that much better balanced in the bargain.
