Considered one of the "first growths" of Napa Valley, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars produces renowned Cabernet Sauvignon from its historic Stags Leap District estate vineyards. The 2018 Fay Cabernet Sauvignon offers fragrant aromas of boysenberry, cherry pie, cassis, sweet spice, and a touch of gardenia. The wine has a velvety mouthfeel with a well-balanced structure supported by lush polished tannins and flavors of blackberry and blueberry.
96 Points - James Suckling Very floral with violets and roses, as well as sweet berries, cherries and some red currants. It’s round and refined with lovely berry character and fine tannins.
95 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate A barrel sample, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard has a deep garnet-purple colour and vibrant scents of freshly crushed red and black currants, fresh black berries and wild blueberries plus hints of cardamom, lavender, black olives and fertile loam. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of crunchy red, black and blue berry layers, supported by sturdy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing earthy.
94 Points - Wine Spectator Very stylish, with a fine-grained alder and cedar backdrop that lets creamed plum, cassis and cherry reduction notes glide through unencumbered. Offers subtle savoury, mineral and anise details that peek in throughout, with latent depth through the finish. Accessible, but there's absolutely no rush here. Drink now through 2038.
94 Points - Wilfred Wong of Wine The 2018 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars FAY Cabernet Sauvignon is authentic. This wine stays honest and accurate in its aromas and flavors of red and black fruit, hints of dust, spice, and dried herbs. Enjoy it with a crown roast of lamb.
