Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Fay Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

$129.99

The Stag's Leap FAY Cabernet Sauvignon is one of Napa Valley's most sought-after Cabernets. Very limited95 Points Robert Parker: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard, much like the S.L.V. and the Cask 23, spent 21 months in 100% new French oak. Beautiful saturated ruby/purple color offers up notes of spring flowers, black raspberry, blueberry and blackberry, sweet tannin, a full-bodied, lush velvety texture, and no hard edges. This is a beauty to drink now and over the next 20-25 years." Voluptuous and rich, the Stag's Leap 2013 FAY Cabernet Sauvignon yields full, expressive notes of red currant, black cherry, and cocoa as well as more subtle impressions of nutmeg, rosemary and vanilla. The savory fruit flavors are beautifully integrated with fine-grained, silky tannins and balanced acidity. The FAY is enticing in its youth, but was built to age. For a teriffic pairing try this wine with an herb crusted beef tenderloin topped with a warm black olive vinaigrette.

Fay all day. Instantly drinkable, and agree that this is ready now. Decanted. Medium soft tannins, dark fruit, a bit of dried fig. Medium bodied and paired perfect with roasted meat. Decent finish of vanilla and cedar but doesn’t have the structure of their SLV or Cask 23. Drink 2018-2022 at the very latest.

Magnum bottle - this has laser focused acidity and tannin and is not too extracted - tending toward the old world. This will age for decades.

Black fruit, vanilla and some baking spices on the nose. Clean fruit, blackberry, semi sweet chocolate. Very nice, but likely much too young.
