Tasting Notes and Description
Tasting Notes For Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Fay Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
This estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon is a stunning example of the exceptional quality and craftsmanship that this winery is known for. From the first pour, the 2020 FAY Cabernet Sauvignon delivers an irresistible bouquet of ripe raspberry and boysenberry, complemented by subtle hints of jasmine, gardenia, and nutmeg. On the palate, the wine boasts a lively mouthfeel with polished tannins, a juicy mid-palate, and a silky finish bursting with red fruits and berries.
Pair this exquisite wine with your favorite grilled or roasted meats, such as baby back ribs with saba glaze or maple-soy glazed salmon, for an unforgettable culinary experience. Alternatively, vegetarian options like eggplant parmesan also make for a delicious pairing with the wine's fruit-forward notes.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Review - Rated 95:
The 2020 blends had been finalized when I visited, with bottling scheduled to take place at the end of August. The 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard features delicate, tea-like leafy notes and florals, plus cherry fruit. It's medium to full-bodied yet silky, fine and elegant, especially given the increase in power over 2018 and 2019 vintages. The long, softly dusty finish epitomizes the elegance this vineyard routinely achieves.
