Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, California
Winemaker's NotesOur Napa Valley collection of wines are crafted with the same approach to winemaking as our limited-production estate wines, resulting in wines of supple power and elegance." In fact, fruit from our estate vineyards forms the focal point of this blend and provides the stylistic inspiration for this wine." ARTEMIS, named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, represents our targeted approach of establishing this wine's origin, style, and character as a gateway to our renowned estate wines."Sensuous aromas of rich, dark chocolate, black cherries, and espresso immediately rise from the glass. As the wine opens, look for more subtle notes of violets, nutmeg, and truffles." The aromas carry over to the palate with additional flavors of cassis, orange peel, and clove." This medium to full-bodied wine has fine grained and smooth pebbly tannins."" Its firm structure and fine balance make it a perfect accompaniment to classic chop house fare." Try this wine with any fine cut of steak and you will be delighted
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Winery
Considered one of the "first growths" of Napa Valley, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars produces renowned Cabernet Sauvignon from its historic Stags Leap District estate vineyards. Founded in 1970, the winery brought international recognition to California winemaking and the Napa Valley when the 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon won the now famout 1976 Paris Tasting, also known as the "Judgement of Paris." Stag's Leap Wine Cellars' three estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignons - CASK 23, S.L.V. and Fay - are among the most highly regarded and collected Cabernet Sauvignons worldwide. The wines are fashioned to express richness balanced by elegant restraint, an approach often described as "an iron fist in a velvet glove." View all Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Wines
