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 flavors along with pleasing vanilla and toasted oak accents. The wine has a beautiful texture with silky tannins, vibrant acidity and a long, persistent finish.94 ponits Wine Advocate , 94 points Wine Enthusiast

This wine has lovely elegant fruit, it's a fine wine, not in your face, it has subtlety. The Shiraz fruit comes from 105 year old vines. It's aged in old oak and concrete.
Deep ruby-red in colour with vibrant aromas of redcurrant and blackberries, elegantly combined with mild notes of white pepper. Medium-bodied on the palate with silky ripe tannins and a long, broad finish. An elegant wine that is easy to drink.
