FAY vineyard remains one of the great Napa Valley vineyards, producing fruit with an abundance of supple red and black berry character, voluptuous perfume and a luscious, fine-grained texture. The grapes were primarily sourced from Blocks 2C, 3A, 8AB, 3B, 2A, 6 and 2B, which combined, give the wine its classic red-fruit tones and aromatic top notes as well as its structure. When the various lots are blended and aged in French oak barrels, the resulting wine gives us the classic expression that is a hallmark of our estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, “an iron fist in a velvet glove.”
The Stag's Leap Wine Cellars FAY Cabernet Sauvignon offers fragrant aromas of boysenberry, cherry pie, cassis, sweet spice and a touch of gardenia. This red wine has a velvety mouthfeel with a well-balanced structure supported by lush polished tannins and flavors of blackberry and blueberry. Try pairing this estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon with Thai Peanut & Shrimp Salad, Savory Plum Tart with Goat Cheese, or Herb Crusted Lamb Chops with Creamy Polenta.
