Soft and elegant at an early stage. Indicative of a lot of well made 12's. Well ripened black raspberries, dark cherries, blackberries leads to a touch of blueberries and strawberries into the mid palate. Violets, soft understated baking spices, thinned black tea, minimal soft powdery dry minerals and earth. Finishes in ripe floral fruit.

Stag's Leap has a number of very good cabs. To me Fay is among the best for those who favor full bodied reds. Fruit hints are complex but not overpowering. No earthy aftertaste. Wonderful with red meat.
