eRobertParker.com 95 points - The 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.

The FAY vineyard is the land where the story of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars began back in 1969 when Warren Winiarski tasted Nathan Fay’s 1968 homemade Cabernet. Warren knew, instantly, that he had found what he was searching for-classic elements of fruit and structure, suppleness and balance. It was a style that Warren refers to as "an iron fist in a velvet glove.” As luck would have it, an adjoining prune orchard was for sale. The Winiarski’s purchased the land and planted a vineyard-now known as S.L.V. - and soon after, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars was born.

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.
