Expert Reviews

89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2001

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.

Here, in the district of Medoc, the varietal is the key component of blended wines that also may include some Merlot and Cabernet Franc, and even Malbec and Petit Verdot. Moving slightly south, Cabernet Sauvignon meets Merlot in roughly equal proportions in the red wines of Graves. In both of these Bordeaux regions, the top bottles...
