    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2008 FAY offers sweet floral aromas along with the signature bright cherry note of the vineyard. Red plum and black cherry flavors combine with hints of vanilla, forest floor, and spice on the palate. The wine has great fruit concentration and fine grained tannins that lead to a long, plum-spiced finish.

    Enjoy with couscous with dried cherries, mushrooms and scallions or pair with roasted duck with a cherry demi-glace.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark ruby/purple-hued with sweet black currant, spring flower, cedar and subtle earthy notes, the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard Estate is a classic Napa Cabernet with both elegance and complexity. It can be drunk now or cellared for 12-14 years.

    The Wine Advocate

    Of the three 2008 Stag's Leap offerings, the Fay impresses as the deepest and most complete, and, if never an especially brawny or extracted take on Cabernet, it conveys a nice sense of both substance and polish. Like its mates, it has a slight herbal twist to its ongoing themes of loam and cherries, and it similarly follows suit with the same in its supple and very approachable manner.
