2015 CABERNET SAUVIGNON, ‘Fay’, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. Napa Valley

Bin:  788

Alcohol percentage:  14.5%

Area:

Stag’s Leap is the name of both the winery and the sub-district of Napa Valley. This estate and it’s then winemaker Warren Winiarski won worldwide renown when their 1973 won the famous 1976 wine tasting at which California Cabernets were pitted against the five Bordeaux ‘first growths’. Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars has maintained exemplary consistency since then.
The Stag’s Leap district is a hillside region just south of Oakville, east of the town of Yountville, and home to some of Napa’s finest reds.
Their two key wines are made from their bests vineyards – ‘Fay’ and ‘SLV’. They also produce ‘Cask 23’, a blend of the two.

Grape variety:

100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged for 20 months in French oak, mostly new oak.

Maturity potential:

2020-2030, at peak from around 2025.

Old Bridge rating:

Top Napa Cabernet is of course over-priced (almost as much as top Bordeaux!) But there is no denying the fabulous quality – Stag’s Leap are a genuine ‘icon’ of the area.

Press review:

“A very classy wine with beautiful black cherry and cassis fruit, blueberry jam, smoked pepper and a lovely floral, lily aroma. Delightful oak spice on the finish”, Decanter Magazine.
“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.” Wien Spectator
