*Two Stars* A touch less herbal and a little richer in sweet oak spice than its sibling from the Fay Vineyard, this bottling shares a certain familial plumpness and palatal suppleness nonetheless. It juxtaposes lots of ripe cherries and deep, cassis-like fruit with elements of milk chocolate, vanilla and cream-sweetened coffee in its very long and nicely layered flavors.
*Cellar Selection* Massive and tannic, and dry to the point of astringency, all this Cab needs is a decade or so to come around. The tannins are bigtime, locking the wine down, but there's a solid core of blackberry and cassis fruit. Once the wine has aged, the sweet fruit will emerge.
Saturated ruby-red. Oaky aromas of cassis, plum, cola and dark chocolate. Very ripe and chocolatey, with supple, somewhat low-toned flavors of currant, dark plum, tobacco and earth. Finishes sweet and persistent, with slightly dry-edged, earthy flavors of sassafras and sweet tobacco. Very Stags Leap in character. (ST)
