Cabernet - Wine List

2017, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, Fay Vineyard, Stags Leap District


95 Points Wine & Spirits - As Stag's Leap Wine Cellars sets out to celebrate its 50th anniversary, this vintage of Fay cabernet may be the best wine I've tasted from that historic vineyard—the site and the wine that initially convinced Warren Winiarski to purchase the rocky hillside next to Nathan Fay's vineyard. The soils at Fay are alluvial, remnants of an ancient riverbed, unlike the rock that eroded off the Stags Leap Escarpment and collected at the base of the hill at S.L.V., Winiarski's original vineyard. In 2017, Fay is the elegant beauty. There's nothing pushy or potent about its complexity, just a waterfall of minerals and fruits that seems to continue long after each taste. It would be hard not to fall in love with this wine's svelte refinement. Open a bottle and let it lift your mood.
