Product Overview

Winemaker's notes: "The S.L.V. is like a poem. Its aromas and flavors are subtle and complex. It shows its classic Bordeaux-like elements in graceful abundance. Nuances of white pepper and intriguing brambly qualities perfume the essence of black plum. Fruit is luscious on the palate with an elegant backbone of spicy French oak flavoring. The wine evolves through layers of tea leaf and cassis flavors that are accompanied by restrained tannins, echoing in a silky finish.

International Wine Cellarage (IWC) Review

IWC 89
Bright saturated ruby. Aromas of cassis, bitter chocolate, graphite and shoe polish, plus a suggestion of leafy herbacity. Supple, pliant and dense, with dark berry flavors complicated by a subtle herbal nuance. Very Stags Leap in character. Sound acids and substantial dusty-but-fine tannins give this sweet but grown-up cabernet solid structure. Showing considerably better today than this winery Fay Vineyard bottling.
