The 2013 FAY Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of blackberry, cinnamon and violet along with hints of clove and nutmeg that carry over onto the palate. The wine has a soft, plush texture with fine-grained tannins that meld with the signature bright red cherry notes of the vineyard, leading to a lingering finish. Enjoy with prosciutto-wrapped pork tenderloin, braised short-ribs or roast chicken with fried sage.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard, much like the S.L.V. and the Cask 23, spent 21 months in 100% new French oak. Beautiful saturated ruby/purple color offers up notes of spring flowers, black raspberry, blueberry and blackberry, sweet tannin, a full-bodied, lush velvety texture, and no hard edges. This is a beauty to drink now and over the next 20-25 years.

Wine EnthusiastSmooth, chalky tannin supports deep, dark layers of tar, black currant and savory peppercorn, within a context of baked plum. Full bodied, the wine is also round and easy to love, with supportive structure making it a worthwhile bottle from the stellar appellation.

Wine SpectatorRich and well-structured, delivering a tight core of blackberry and currant notes, and dusty, cedary oak, anise and underbrush flavors. On the finish, the tannins turn dry and loamy, with a dusty presence that should subside with time. Drink now through 2028. 5,367 cases made.
