The 2014 FAY Cabernet Sauvignon has a fragrant nose of ripe blackberry and raspberry along with notes of sweet fig, cinnamon and violet. The palate is elegant with silky tannins and a core of rich fruit with a hint of crème brulee. The wine finishes with a lingering berry pie character. Pairs well with prosciutto-wrapped pork tenderloin, roast chicken with fresh herbs, or hearty pasta.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014s are not yet in bottle. As for the 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Estate-Grown, this has a similar saturated purple color, terrific presence on the palate, great ripeness, loads of minerality, floral notes and beautifully pure blackcurrant liqueur intermixed with licorice and spice. It is full-bodied and rich with well-integrated tannin and wood. This is another 20- to 25-year wine, but should drink well after its release.

Wine EnthusiastGrippy in tannin, this wine has a substantial weight on the palate that resolves in the glass to highlight flavors of black currant, clove and dried herb. Thick and rich, it has secondary characteristics of tobacco and earthy compost that accentuate its overall savory nature.

Wine SpectatorPure, rich and graceful, offering a mix of elegant dark berry, loamy earth, graphite, cedar and currant notes, with the fruit flavors gaining depth and dimension on the long, persistent finish. Drink now through 2029. 4,600 cases made. -JL
