Stags Leap Wine Cellars Artemis
Description: Winemaker's Notes
This Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of blackcherry and plum with hints of vanilla. On the palate, the wine has asoft entry with ripe mixed berry and plum flavors. The wine has a medium-bodied mouthfeel with round, satin-like tannins.

Enjoy this wine with grilled tri-tip, braised short ribs, or pasta with wild mushrooms and prosciutto.

Critical Acclaim

Wilfred Wong of - "Few oenophiles would ever turn down an opportunity to taste any wine from the iconic Stag's Leap Wine Cellars. Founded in 1972, this top producer has made some of the world's most memorable wines. Brought to fame on May 24, 1976, when the winery's 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon took honors in a blind tasting against some of Bordeaux's finest (including a couple of first growths), the winery's fame has continue to grow. The 2013 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis ranks as one of my favorite Cabernet Sauvignons of the vintage. Made from a superior year and by a new winemaker, I waited with great anticipation as the wine's release got closer. The wine exceeded all expectations. Bright and pure with red currants and savory earth, this wine exhibits excellent purity. I tasted the winery's first vintage over 40 years ago and happily report that all is good. Congrats to new winemaker Marcus Notaro. He was fortunate to start his Stag's Leap Wine Cellars tenure with one of Napa Valley's top vintages. Incidentally, Artemis was named after the Greek goddess of the hunt. While Notaro's mission is to find the best fruit for Artemis, we will not have to worry he has already proven himself. This wine is drinking well now and will improve over the next half-dozen years. (Tasted: February 19, 2016, Napa, CA)"
