Winemaker's Notes

(From 2008 Vintage) The 2008 CASK 23 combines the signature perfume notes of FAY vineyard with the structure and hints of minerality of S.L.V. The nose begins with enticing aromas of violets, dark berries, fresh grated nutmeg and mocha mint that lead to a luscious palate. Vibrant blackberry and black cherry fl avors mingle with hints of cola, espresso and dark chocolate. Bright and lively, this Cabernet has great fruit density and a silky texture.

    Not unlike the previous wine in structure, but much more classic in its delivery of ripe cherry fruit tinged with notes of cola, caramel and an elusive hint of dried flowers that is the patina of successful bottle aging, this one is maturing now and will peak in the next few years. It gets it points for current drinkability.
