2007 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars "Fay" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1062161 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark This is a very strongly flavored Cabernet, most notable for the intensity of its blackberry, cherry and raspberry fruit. It's almost sweet, an impression furthered by the caramel of toasted oak, although in reality the wine is fully and appropriately dry. Delicious and flashy, it should evolve in the bottle over the next dozen years. Inner quote mark (4/2011)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard Estate is an outstanding effort made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from a 67-acre estate vineyard in Stags Leap. Its deep ruby/plum color is followed by sweet aromas of plums, Allspice, licorice, black currants, cherries and flowers. Medium-bodied and elegant with a nice texture and silky tannins, it should drink well for 10-12 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Very serious nose. Good stuff. Dense and dusty. Majestic have a better collection than most of serious California wine. Proper wine that would hold its own with some very smart red bordeaux. 17.5/20 points. (JR) Inner quote mark (5/2011)

K&L Notes

Fay is Stag's Leap's most feminine and red-fruited Cabernet. While some reds from this region knock you over with their intensity and sheer power, this Fay sneaks up on you and leaves a very memorable impression. The 2007 Fay shows the typical bright cherry aromatic signature of the vineyard, as well as barrel spice, sandalwood, red plum and subtle sous bois (forest floor) aromas. The palate is fresh and energetic, with perfectly ripened red and black cherry and plum fruit. Gentle notes of spice, caramel and marshmallow cream sit in the background, adding nuance without masking the fruit character. The wine is solidly structured yet supple, closing with refreshing natural acidity.
