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...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)

Decanter

Outer quote mark One of the jewels in the Stag's crown, this is perfumed and delicious. Cherry, liquorice and sweet briar. Spicy, grippy tannins. Drink 2011-26. (AL) Inner quote mark (3/2006)

K&L Notes

The nose fills with the scents of red currants, lavender, violets and butterscotch. In the mouth, the wine softens as the flavors — red plums, black cherries, mint a ribbon of vanilla — expand in the mouth. The tannins are well integrated from the very smooth entry through the silky finish.
