95pts James Suckling

Concentrated, with lots of black and purple fruit and crushed violets. Broodingly dark and youthful at this stage, but remains elegant. Fleshy, dense and full-bodied with a mouthful of finely polished tannins that dissipate into the black fruit. Silky, opulent texture here, with fresh, medium acidity.

93pts Wine Spectator

Packed with bramble, blackberry and black currant pâte de fruit notes, this has good energy, while lacings of licorice and mocha fill out the finish. Lots of immediate appeal here, but there's no rush. 

92pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard offers a perfumed nose marked by delicate purple raspberry notes and a touch more herbal, tea-like nuances than the 2018. It's medium to full-bodied in the mouth but delicate and elegant, with a long, silky finish. Best After 2022.

 

Winemaker Notes

The 2019 FAY Cabernet Sauvignon delivers fragrant aromas of ripe raspberry and boysenberry along with hints of jasmine, gardenia and nutmeg. The wine has a lively mouthfeel with polished tannins, a juicy mid-palate and a silky finish bursting with red fruits and berries.

Try pairing this estate-grown Cabernet with baby back ribs with saba glaze, maple-soy glazed salmon or eggplant parmesan.
