If the thought of dark berry pie and vanilla ice cream sounds like the end to a perfect meal, then you need to buy Stags Leap Wine Cellars Fay Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2012 online from Vine Republic. This vintage hits the nose with violet, cinnamon, vanilla cloves and boysenberries for an elegant and inviting aroma. Not too bold, this Cab has a texture that feels like velvet — thanks to fine tannins and a fruit core that turns into red cherries throughout a long finish. Pair this delicious wine with your next pork, short ribs or roasted chicken entrée.

A barrel sample blended of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Cabernet Franc, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard is deep purple-black in color and begins just a tad broody, giving way to earth-laced blackcurrants, black cherries and warm plums plus suggestions of unsmoked cigars, charcuterie and tar. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely coated with energetic black fruits and savory layers, framed by firm, ripe tannins and background freshness, finishing long and mineral laced.

Gorgeous and expressive, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay is classy, polished and super-refined. All of the pedigree of the vintage comes through loud and clear. Resonant, but not at all heavy, the 2016 is just sublime. Mocha, leather, spice and wild cherry are seamless in the glass, with silky, creamy tannins that bring out the wine's sensual side even further.

Soft, rounded red fruit marks the juicy midpalate of this beautifully made wine that is appealing in its robust weight and power. With tamed tannins, it offers a mix of black cherry, dried herb, graphite and crushed rock around a length of supportive oak.

Red currant and plum puree flavors stream through, with well-focused structure underneath keeping this moving along as savory, floral and mineral hints kick in on the finish. Very stylish. Drink now through 2035. 3,750 cases made.
