Tasting Notes

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a very strongly flavored Cabernet, most notable for the intensity of its blackberry, cherry and raspberry fruit. It's almost sweet, an impression furthered by the caramel of toasted oak, although in reality the wine is fully and appropriately dry. Delicious and flashy, it should evolve in the bottle over the next dozen years." (04/11) Fay is Stag's Leap's most feminine and red-fruited Cabernet. While some reds from this region knock you over with their intensity and sheer power, this Fay sneaks up on you and leaves a very memorable impression. The 2007 FAY shows the typical bright cherry aromatic signature of the vineyard, as well as barrel spice, sandalwood, red plum and subtle sous bois (forest floor) aromas. The palate is fresh and energetic, with perfectly ripened red and black cherry and plum fruit. Gentle notes of spice, caramel and marshmallow cream sit in the background, adding nuance without masking the fruit character. The wine is solidly structured yet supple, closing with refreshing natural acidity.
