ARTEMIS

Cabernet Sauvignon

2011

Napa Valley, CA

This Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of red currant and cranberry mixed with hints of vanilla and dried herbs. On the palate, the wine has a soft entry with dried cherry, blackberry, currant and savory herb flavors. The wine has a medium-bodied mouthfeel with round, satin-like tannins.

Named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, ARTEMIS is a wine that truly reflects the name. It’s the culmination of our hunt for the finest grapes from Napa Valley which, when blended with estate-grown fruit, combine to create a Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses the regional character of Napa Valley with the signature style of Stag’s Leap Cellars. The result is a wine with lush fruit flavors balanced by structure and elegance.

86% Cabernet Sauvignon
14% Merlot

surprisingly disappointing. too much “cabernet.”
overpowering. sweet. heavy.
