wine: Stag's Leap Fay




You know what's really great about a great bottle of wine?  It tastes so very good. You know what the bad part about a really great bottle of wine is?  It makes your $5 bottle of wine taste like grape juice.

Oh well, a great bottle of wine is totally worth it.  This one is no exception.  We got this bottle when we were at the winery (which you may remember since I just told you about it.) We came home from a day in Napa with a few really good bottles of wine. 
Really good bottles.

The Stag's Leap FAY is one of our favorite wines ever. I think it might be Mike's #1 wine.  Which is saying something because he's got good taste. (He married me for goodness sakes! HA!) No seriously, the top of his list is typically Silver Oak and Joseph Phelps.  Sorry to tell you Mr. Phelps but you will not be receiving the top honors this season.  I'm also sorry to inform you however that I can't for the life of me think about any descriptive words that explain the FAY, other than:
YUM.
