2005 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Fay" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1041679 91 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark The mildly leathery, coffee and loamy earth traits that mark all of the SLWC siblings is again evident here, but this wine conveys a bit more fruity depth and thus moves to the head of the clan. Fairly full-bodied and pleasantly supple in feel, it is at once both accessible and rather deep, and, if it has tannins in place for five years of growth, it is already inviting and will partner nicely with savory meats in the mid-term. Lacking the bombast of the bigger wines in this review, the SLWC Fay offering makes it way with balance and richness. Inner quote mark (4/2009)

K&L Notes

There is *plenty* to love about this stylish wine, starting with generous aromas of violets, blackberry, nutmeg, and black licorice reminiscent of Good ‘n Plenty candy. The aromas are followed by an alluring mix of dark fruit flavors that envelop the palate with accent notes of chocolate and vanilla. The 2005 Fay is smooth and silky, with a richness and persistence all the way through the slightly smoky oak finish. Enjoy this expressive wine with Moroccan spiced lamb or duck with Port-cherry sauce.
