2016 FAY Cabernet Sauvignon (Estate Collection)
Generous and inviting, the top-rated 2016 FAY has vibrant aromas of ripe raspberry, blueberry spice, and boysenberry with a touch of nutmeg. The palate is loaded with blueberry and black cherry flavors wrapped around soft and silky tannins. Bright berry notes linger on the persistent finish in this Napa Valley Cabernet.
The Estate Collection: From the beginning, the Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars vision has been to create wines that speak to the place from which they come, with distinctive elements of aroma, flavor and texture. These goals are realized in our three limited-production EstateGrown Cabernet Sauvignons – CASK 23, S.L.V. and FAY—which are crafted from vineyards surrounding the winery.
