Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon 2002
Taste and more flavors emerge: raspberry, red currant, orange peel, a bit of cocoa powder and ginger. Fine-grained tannins and balanced acidity contribute to the rich mouth feel and carry through the perfumed cherry-vanilla finish.
Pair with a holiday roast, an aged sirloin topped with butter and pan juices, or a tagine of slow-roasted vegetables—butternut squash, beets, yams, red onions—spiced with cumin and cardamom.
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. Learn about Stags Leap history and estate-grown wines.
History of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars
Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars was founded in 1970 with the purchase of a 40 acre property in the now famed Stag’s Leap District AVA in Napa Valley. The winery brought international recognition to California winemaking and the Napa Valley region when their 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon won the 1976 Paris Tasting, also known as the "Judgement of Paris."
