Wine Advocate 95
“A barrel sample, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard has a deep garnet-purple color and vibrant scents of freshly crushed red and black currants, fresh black berries and wild blueberries plus hints of cardamom, lavender, black olives and fertile loam. The medium to full-bodied palate is chock-full of crunchy red, black and blue berry layers, supported by sturdy tannins and loads of freshness, finishing earthy.”

The 2018 Fay Cabernet Sauvignon offers fragrant aromas of boysenberry, cherry pie, cassis, sweet spice and a touch of gardenia. The wine has a velvety mouthfeel with a well-balanced structure supported by lush polished tannins and flavors of blackberry and blueberry.
Try pairing this estate-grown Cabernet with Thai peanut and shrimp salad, savory plum tart with goat cheese, or herb crusted lamb chops with creamy polenta.
