This 2010 Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon offers pleasing aromas of black
cherries, red plums, violets, nutmeg and sandalwood along with a hint
of dried herbs. The cherry and plum notes carry over onto the palate
and combine with ripe, mixed berries. The wine has a smooth, supple
entry with good mid-palate structure with fine-grained tannins that
lead to a lingering berry-cherry finish.
Enjoy this wine with grilled tri-tip, braised short ribs or pasta with wild mushrooms and prosciutto.
Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Merlot
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis is laced with sweet red berries, plums, flowers, mint and cloves. It is an attractive, medium-bodied wine to drink over the next decade plus, once the tannins begin to soften. Today the 2010 is a bit compact. The Artemis is made from both estate and purchased fruit. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."
