The 2013 CASK 23 combines the signature perfume notes of FAY vineyard with the structure and minerality of S.L.V. Aromas of black cherry, cola, currant and ripe figs begin the nose of this rich and opulent Cabernet Sauvignon. The palate is full of black fruit (black plum and black cherry) and blueberry flavors that lead to an intense, lingering finish with a touch of cocoa. Food pairings: Grilled New York steak, prime rib with jus, or black pepper-crusted Ahi tuna steaks.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Cask 23 is backward, but concentrated, with beautiful blue, red and black fruits, spring flowers, a touch of toasty oak, relatively noticeable tannin and a full-bodied, multi-layered mouthfeel. This is coiled tight compared to the 2012, but has fabulous upside potential. Forget it for another 3-4 years and drink it over the following 25-30 years.
