Fay Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
94 points Wine Enthusiast: So upfront in spectactularly ripe raspberry, cherry and mocha flavors, it's hard to keep from draining the bottle now. This shows the classic tannins of Stags Leap, soft and sweet but potent. Drink it now and enjoy for sheer opulence, but you might be missing out on something really special around 2016. abv: 14.4%. (Apr 2012)
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars is considered one of Napa Valley's first-growths. We were founded by Warren Winiarski and his family in 1970 and are best known for our estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignons — CASK 23, S.L.V., and FAY. Over the years, our wines have become some of the most highly regarded and collected wines worldwide. They are fashioned to express classic elegance, structure, and ageability, and to reflect the place in which they are grown.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
External Reviews for Fay Estate Cabernet Sauvignon
The 2008 FAY offers sweet floral aromas along with the signature bright cherry note of the vineyard. Red plum and black cherry fl avors combine with hints of vanilla, forest floor, and spice on the palate.
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. Sleek and focused, with a complex mix of roasted herb, dried berry, cedar, tobacco and anise flavors. Full-bodied and firmly tannic, impressive not only for whats here, but for ending a long drought of ordinary if not off-kilter vintages from this famous property. Best from 2012 through 2022. 3,338 cases made. -JL
