Elegant and inviting with a nose of violet, cinnamon, vanilla clove and boysenberry that brings to mind a slice of dark berry pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. The wine has a silky, velvety texture from the fine tannins and rich fruit core that allows the wine to flow over the mid- palate and merge with the signature bright red cherry notes of the vineyard. While not bold in character, the 2012 FAY has great persistence and length, promising long life. Enjoy this estate-grown Cabernet with pork saltimbocca, braised short-ribs or roast chicken with fried sage

Wine EnthusiastFrom the vineyard that helped propel the appellation's reputation into the stratosphere, this wine delivers both in terms of its historical significance, but also in present-day refinement and complexity. A flinty, earthy layer of black truffle and coffee open the aromatic profile of the wine before offering bold, brawny flavors of leather and black currant. The oak is well integrated and the tannins sizable yet behaved. This is a beautiful wine.

Wine SpectatorImpressive, with a rich, juicy core of black currant, blackberry, dusty earth and savory underbrush, giving this an expansive, well-focused range of flavors. Persistent overall, with ripe, tobacco-scented tannins. Drink now through 2028. 4,400 cases made.
