FAY vineyard remains one the great Napa Valley vineyards, producing fruit with an abundance of supple red and black berry character, voluptuous perfume and a luscious, fine-grained texture. When the various lots are blended and aged in French oak barrels, the resulting wine gives us the classic expression that is a hallmark of our estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignon, “an iron fist in a velvet glove.”
This FAY Cabernet Sauvignon offers bright red fruit aromas along with notes of black tea, olive, and baking spices. The wine has a balanced mouthfeel with a nice concentration of berry fruit on the mid-palate that leads to a cinnamon and spice finish. This bottling is richer than past vintages as is characteristic of the vintage.
