The 2009 CASK 23
combines the signature perfume notes of FAY
vineyard with the structure and minerality of S.L.V. The wine
offers enticing high notes of Bing cherry, red fruit, cassis
and anise. The palate is broad and expansive with intense black
cherry, blackberry and cassis fl avors along with
pleasing vanilla and toasted oak accents. The wine
has a beautiful texture with silky tannins, vibrant acidity and
a long, persistent finish.
Serve CASK 23 with
spice-rubbed prime rib, braised veal chops or seared
black pepper-crusted Ahi tuna steaks.
