    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine opens with generous aromas of bright raspberry, sandalwood, vanilla and anise along with the signature bright cherry note of the vineyard. The aromas are followed by an alluring mix of red cherry, blueberry and tangerine that envelop the palate with nuances of vanilla and spice from careful aging in French oak barrels. The palate is lush with ripe tannins, balanced acidity and a persistent berry/cherry finish.

    Enjoy with spice-rubbed rack of lamb or roasted duck with a cherry sauce.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Supple and generous are just a few words that begin to describe this delicious 100% Cabernet. The tannins are gentle, the acidity soft but supportive of the structure, and as for the flavors, they go beyond satisfaction into sheer delight. They include blackberries, cherries, blueberries, currants, mocha and red licorice, but the wine has an earthiness and minerality that give it true complexity. This is Stag’s Leap most accessible 2009 Cabernet, easily deserving its high score for sheer delight. Drink now-2015.

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Estate is a striking, radiant wine graced with layers of dark red fruit, flowers, spices and menthol. It is a generous, open wine with great depth and polish in its textured personality. The oak is a bit prominent in this vintage, yet the 2009 is a huge improvement over the 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021.
