Stag's Leap Fay Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

75cl / 15%

“As Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars sets out to celebrate its 50th anniversary, this vintage of Fay cabernet may be the best wine I’ve tasted from that historic vineyard—the site and the wine that initially convinced Warren Winiarski to purchase the rocky hillside next to Nathan Fay’s vineyard.

The soils at Fay are alluvial, remnants of an ancient riverbed, unlike the rock that eroded off the Stags Leap Escarpment and collected at the base of the hill at S.L.V., Winiarski’s original vineyard. In 2017, Fay is the elegant beauty.

There’s nothing pushy or potent about its complexity, just a waterfall of minerals and fruits that seems to continue long after each taste.

It would be hard not to fall in love with this wine’s svelte refinement. Open a bottle and let it lift your mood.”

History of Stag’s Leap Winery

Stags’ Leap Winery is located seven miles (11km) north of Napa town in the the now famed Stag’s Leap District AVA in Napa Valley. It is situated on a large estate with 36 hectares (90 acres) under vine. Considered one of the “first growths” of Napa Valley, grapes have been continuously grown on the lands of Stags’ Leap since the 1880s. The property itself was founded in 1893 and by 1920 the manor house was built and named Stags’ Leap.

Stags’ Leap is best known for its Cabernet Sauvignon and Petite Sirah, as well as Chardonnay and Viognier. A rosé is also produced from a blend of Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Within the portfolio are varietal and blended expressions as well as single-vineyard and single-barrel selection wines. The winery brought international recognition to California winemaking and the Napa Valley region when their 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon won the 1976 Paris Tasting, also known as the “Judgement of Paris”.
