Winemaker's Notes

A Higher Target, A New Name. The replanting of our estate vineyards now allows us to designate a larger proportion of our own superb fruit for use in our Napa Valley Cabernet. Previously, our blend had drawn from selected vineyards in many parts of the valley to weave together its varied terrain and represent the Napa Valley as a whole. Now, with the 2001 vintage, we are elevating our sights to focus not on a representative style, but on a balance of harmony and tension, of power and suppleness, targeting what we call the golden mean principle expressed so beautifully in our estate wines FAY, SLV and CASK 23. We chose the name Artemis to reflect this new vision for the Napa Valley Cabernet.

Vineyards ~ The heart of the ARTEMIS blend is composed of fruit from our historic FAY vineyard, a promising new estate vineyard, and a few growers of exceptional fruit in the Napa Valley. While in years past the estate-grown portion of the Napa Valley blend typically represented less than 5 percent, beginning in 2001 the percentage of estate fruit has increased to nearly 30%, of which 20% is from FAY. Now, ARTEMIS reveals the silky tannins and perfume of FAY fruit that inspired Warren Winiarski when he first tasted Nathan Fay's wine in 1968, and reflects the classical balance and elegant character that have been the hallmark of his winemaking for thirty years.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
