"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."

"A finely-crafted, sultry style with a gorgeous blackberry and damson character. Black cherries, clove, cigar box and tobacco notes."Nathan Fay’s 1968 Cabernet from this plot lit the fire for Warren Winiarski’s purchase of the adjoining land, which would go on to become Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. Then in 1986 Winiarski bought Fay Vineyard and immediately replanted, making 1990 the first vintage under Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars’ ownership. This fruit produces a beautiful, red-fruited and perfumed expression. Aromas of underbrush, cigar box and toffee meld into a dense but lifted, multi-layered palate with flavours of bramble, cassis and cigar smoke. About 2% of Cabernet Franc rounds out the blend.
