94 Points - Wine Spectator
"Fresh, with racy streaks of violet and anise running alongside the pure blueberry, raspberry and cassis flavors. Offers a polished feel through the finish, showing savory-tinged energy and detail, not just sheen. A lovely expression of Cabernet. Best from 2020 through 2035. 3,750 cases made." -JM, 2/28/19

(93-95) Points - Wine Advocate
"A barrel sample, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay Vineyard is deep garnet-purple in color with an earthy/herbal nose of black cherry and blackberry notions plus scents of incense, dusty earth and menthol. Full-bodied, rich and very earthy in the mouth, it offers plush tannins and a long, layered finish." -LPB, 12/29/17

92 Points - Vinous
"Next to the S.L.V., the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Fay is sensual, silky and polished, with lovely fruit purity to match its mid-weight personality. Although the Fay is less exuberant than the S.L.V., it offers better balance and a more harmonious expression of Stags Leap. Sweet red cherry, tobacco, cedar and dried flowers are nicely lifted throughout." -AG, Dec/2018
