1992 Stag`s Leap Wine Cellars Fay Cabernet

1992 STAG`S LEAP WINE CELLARS FAY VINEYARD NAPA CABERNET SAUVIGNON- I remember buying one bottle of this and the 92` SLV and Cask 23 wines once released and the occasion presented itself to open this one and see if that was a good decision or not; it was a brilliant decision.

The colour was a medium hue of crimson; the nose, taste and mouthfeel components were strongly suggestive of elegance and finesse; this charming wine gave up aromas of plum and blackberry with mild accents of milk chocolate, talc and sandalwood; this is also pretty much what the taste revealed along with some blueberry; it was in perfect balance, had a smooth, silky texture, soft tannins and a medium weight thereby tenderly caressing the palate; I assume there is some Merlot in this and probably a touch of Petit Verdot as well, but the softness and velvety character says more Merlot complimenting some very mild Cab Sauv.

Cheers,
Blake
