            [Notes2] => 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. The grapes were primarily sourced from Blocks 4, 3A, 3B, 8C2, 1, 6, 2B and 2A, which combined, give the wine its classic red-fruit tones and aromatic top notes as well as its structure.
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => Youthful nose of sweet blackcurrant jam and black cherry with floral and cedar undertones. Dry, with high acid and grippy tannins; pronounced and dense flavours of sweet spiced fruit with chocolate and wood notes. Rich, ripe and full flavoured this wine is incredibly complex and a quintessential top-end Californian Cabernet.  Presented in a wooden box.
            [MediaNotes] => "The 2020 Fay Vineyard features delicate, tea-like leafy notes and florals, plus cherry fruit. It`s medium to full-bodied yet silky, fine and elegant, especially given the increase in power over 2018 and 2019 vintages. The long, softly dusty finish epitomizes the elegance this vineyard routinely achieves."

93-95 POINTS - THE WINE ADVOCATE, SEPTEMBER 15, 2022
            [ServingSuggestion] => 
            [WineMakingNotes] => A dry and hot growing season, coupled with a global pandemic and multiple wildfires, made 2020 a year we won’t forget. Rain right at bloom interrupted fruit set and provided a “natural fruit thinning” that brought the crop in balance relative to the dry soil conditions. The warm weather this vintage produced wines with a riper character. We are very pleased with the resulting wines from the 2020 vintage (although there won’t be as many bottles) to carry our legacy forward.

About this product +

Producer >

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is a Napa Valley estate rooted in the legends of the Stags Leap District and Napa Valley’s ascent to global wine recognition. Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars was established in 1970 with the purchase of the S.L.V. vineyard. Only six years later, the 1973 S.L.V. Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was awarded the highest honor at the Judgment of Paris blind tasting, besting First Growth Bordeaux Chateaux. This achievement solidified Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and the Napa Valley as places that crafted world-class wines.

Viticulture >

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. The grapes were primarily sourced from Blocks 4, 3A, 3B, 8C2, 1, 6, 2B and 2A, which combined, give the wine its classic red-fruit tones and aromatic top notes as well as its structure.

Winemaking >

A dry and hot growing season, coupled with a global pandemic and multiple wildfires, made 2020 a year we won’t forget. Rain right at bloom interrupted fruit set and provided a “natural fruit thinning” that brought the crop in balance relative to the dry soil conditions. The warm weather this vintage produced wines with a riper character. We are very pleased with the resulting wines from the 2020 vintage (although there won’t be as many bottles) to carry our legacy forward. Blend: 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Cabernet Franc Aging: 21 months 85% new French oak

"The 2020 Fay Vineyard features delicate, tea-like leafy notes and florals, plus cherry fruit. It`s medium to full-bodied yet silky, fine and elegant, especially given the increase in power over 2018 and 2019 vintages. The long, softly dusty finish epitomizes the elegance this vineyard routinely achieves."
