About Stag's Leap Wine Cellars 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon, Fay Vyd., Napa Valley

One of the great vineyards of Napa Valley, pioneer farmer Nathan Fay planted his vineyard way back in 1961. It was the first Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard planted in the Stags Leap District. Fay Vineyard Cabs have garnered tremendous praise and accolades over this half century including countless 90+ scores. Stag's Leap Wine Cellars purchased most of Fay's vineyard when the grower retired in 1986 and Fay Vineyard Cab continues to be one of their signature wines. This 2015 is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 22 months in 89% new French oak barrels.

This new release scored 93-95 from the Wine Advocate. They said "A barrel sample, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard is deep garnet-purple in color with an earthy/herbal nose of black cherry and blackberry notions plus scents of incense, dusty earth and menthol. Full-bodied, rich and very earthy in the mouth, it offers plush tannins and a long, layered finish."

and Wine Spectator just scored this 94 points saying "Fresh, with racy streaks of violet and anise running alongside the pure blueberry, raspberry and cassis flavors. Offers a polished feel through the finish, showing savory-tinged energy and detail, not just sheen. A lovely expression of Cabernet. Best from 2020 through 2035."
