Wine Spectator | Rating: 88Firm, tight and tannic, this is a tightly wound '96 that needs patience, as the chunky core of currant, spice, coffee, mineral and earth notes needs time to soften and evolve.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 85The 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Faye exhibits an attractive dark ruby color with pink at the rim. The nose offers up sweet kirsch, dried cherry, earth, oak, and foresty aromas. Light to medium-bodied, with zesty acidity and slight greenness to the tannin, this is a pleasant, but uninspiring effort.Author: Robert Parker
