2002 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Fay" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1017726 90 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark The immediate impression is of extreme youth and mandatory cellaring. Bluntly, this is not an easy wine to like now. It has a peppery edge, and the blackberry fruit is buried under tons of dark, brooding tannins. Best to age until at least 2009, but it should be worth the wait. *Cellar Selection* Inner quote mark (4/2006)

Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark With a wealth of rich, smoky, slightly herbal and somewhat coffee-like themes lending singular identity to both its complex aromas and layered flavors, this supple, medium-bodied effort is keyed more on sweet ripe cherries than classic cassis. It is easy on the palate and firmed by fine-grained tannins at the finish and suggests that optimal drinking should arrive in three to five years. *One Star* Inner quote mark (4/2006)


Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Dark raspberry, chocolatey oak and hints of celery and mint on the nose; offers more aromatic lift than the S.L.V. Creamy and lush in texture, with sweet flavors of raspberry, spices and earth; grew more chocolatey as it opened in the glass. The firm finish features substantial but sweet tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2006)
