    Winemaker Notes
    The 2010 CASK 23 combines the signature perfume notes of FAYvineyard with the structure and minerality of S.L.V. The wine openswith deep red and black cherry aromas along with notes of juicystrawberry, cocoa and spice. The wine has an elegant texture with very fine tannins and great acidity. On the palate the wine is full bodied with rich dark berry fruit with hints of cedar and white truffle that lead to a long fruit and spice driven finish. Serve CASK 23 with filet mignon with blue cheese crumbles, grilled venison with a red wine reduction or black pepper-crusted Ahi tuna steaks.

    Critical Acclaim
    92: Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
    In a vintage such as 2010 where individual terroirs are so clearly marked, the Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Cask 23 – a blend of the SLV and Fay – is at a distinct disadvantage because it naturally lacks the character and personality of those two wines. I must also note that the SLV and Fay have improved dramatically on their own terms, so the rationale of blending them is further diminished. To be sure the Cask 23 is an excellent representation of the vintage. There is plenty of 2010 fruit, structure and tannin, along with attractive hints of smoke, tar and incense, but at the end of the day, I find the Cask 23 less satisfying than Stags’ Leap Wine Cellars’ very best wines. Anticipated maturity: 2016-2030.

    90: Decanter
    Menthol and blackberry aromas dominate this bold, forward, very developed wine. Round, smooth, polished palate with a compact structure and medium length. Moderate and chocolaty finish.
    Drink 2014–2028
