Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Fay Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Stag's Leap Wine Cellars|
A barrel sample, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard is deep garnet-purple in color with an earthy/herbal nose of black cherry and blackberry notions plus scents of incense, dusty earth and menthol. Full-bodied, rich and very earthy in the mouth, it offers plush tannins and a long, layered finish.
Fresh, with racy streaks of violet and anise running alongside the pure blueberry, raspberry and cassis flavors. Offers a polished feel through the finish, showing savory-tinged energy and detail, not just sheen. A lovely expression of Cabernet. Best from 2020 through 2035. 3,750 cases made.
An herbal imprint permeates across this wine-a bright expression of the grape that's earthy and lingering in tobacco, cigar box and pencil shavings. Clove, currant and sage play prominent roles across a landscape of full-bodied balance and complexity.
