CASK 23, made only in exceptional vintages, is a blend of the best fruit from the S.L.V. and FAY vineyards, including some from the original 1972 vines. Each batch is vinified and aged separately for 24 months in French oak before being blended to create CASK 23. This vintage combines the perfumes of FAY and minerality of S.L.V to create a wine that is bright, lively, spicy, and silky in texture.
Winemaker Notes:The 2017 CASK 23 combines the signature perfume notes of FAY vineyard with the structure and dark fruit of S.L.V. The wine opens with a rich berry medley and silky, layered aromas of dates, cocoa spice, cassis, black olive, and pomegranate. The palate is full in structure, yet balanced and persistent with a lush texture. Flavors of currant, dark cherry, and spice linger on the finish. Enjoy this CASK 23 with red wine braised Osso Buco and wild mushroom risotto, green olive crusted lamb rack with fennel & couscous or New York steak au poivre with honey and sherry glazed shallots. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
