Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Fay Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2018
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Stag's Leap Wine Cellars|
A barrel sample, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard has a deep garnet-purple color and vibrant scents of freshly crushed red and black currants, fresh black berries and wild blueberries plus hints of cardamom, lavender, black olives and fertile loam. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of crunchy red, black and blue berry layers, supported by sturdy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing earthy.
Very stylish, with a fine-grained alder and cedar backdrop that lets creamed plum, cassis and cherry reduction notes glide through unencumbered. Offers subtle savory, mineral and anise details that peek in throughout, with latent depth through the finish. Accessible, but there's absolutely no rush here. Drink now through 2038. 3,700 cases made.
