Winemaker Notes

The 2009 Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of black cherry cola, red cherry, vanilla bean and cocoa powder along with a touch of clove and sage. These notes carry over onto the palate and combine with flavors of milk chocolate, toasty oak and hint of wintergreen. The wine has a smooth texture with great depth and fine-grained tannins. The vibrant fruit, great structure and balanced acidity make this wine pair extremely well with hardy dishes such as braised short ribs or filet mignon with a Cabernet and wild mushroom demi-glace.

Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot

Critical Acclaim

W&S 91
Wine & Spirits

A warm, Mediterranean style of cabernet, this is sunny and stony with an herbal spice. Tart black cherry fruit warms the palate, as does the rustic grip of the tannins. Is it old-fashioned in the sense of Italianate styles of the past, or is it a less stylized, unmediated expression of Napa Valley's contemporary climate? Something to ponder over a glass and a bowl of pasta with boar sugo.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

This has lots of ripe, plush blackberry, olive and dark chocolate flavors. It packs a punch that lasts into a long, spicy finish. Delicious, classy, and lovely to drink now, although it will evolve through at least 2018.

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars, , California
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars
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."

Oakville

View all wine

Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district covers the stretch of valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This AVA is home to the legendary To Kalon Vineyard as well as many powerhouse wineries including Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak, Robert Mondavi, and Opus One. The climate is generally warm and agreeable and the soil is well-drained, resulting in year after year of favorable vintages.

Cabernet here is often bottled varietally but is also popular in Bordeaux blends. Oakville wines are known for their rich texture, structured tannins, dark and brooding fruit, often with a healthy dose of new oak. These age-worthy and prestigious wines are favored by collectors throughout the world.

Bordeaux Blends

View all wine

One of the world’s most classic and popular styles of red wine, Bordeaux-inspired blends have spread from their homeland in France to nearly every corner of the New World, especially in California, Washington, and Australia. Typically based on either Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot and supported by Cabernet Franc, Malbec, and/or Petit Verdot, these are sometimes referred to in the US as “Meritage” blends. In Bordeaux itself, Cabernet Sauvignon dominates in wines from the Left Bank of the Gironde river, while the Right Bank focuses on Merlot. Often, blends from outside the region are classified as being inspired by one or the other.

In the Glass

Cabernet-based, Left-Bank-styled wines are typically more tannic and structured, while Merlot-based wines modeled after the Right Bank are softer and suppler. Cabernet Franc can add herbal notes, while Malbec and Petit Verdot contribute color and structure. Wines from Bordeaux can be bold and fruit-forward or restrained and earthy, while New World facsimiles tend to emulate the former style. In general, Bordeaux red blends can have aromas and flavors of black currant, cedar, plum, graphite, and violet, with more red fruit flavors when Merlot makes up a high proportion of the blend.

Perfect Pairings

Since Bordeaux red blends are often quite structured and tannic, they pair best with hearty, flavorful, and fatty meat dishes. Any type of steak makes for a classic pairing. Equally welcome with these wines would be beef brisket, pot roast, braised lamb, or smoked duck.

Sommelier Secret

While the region of Bordeaux is limited to a select few approved grape varieties, the New World is free to experiment. Bordeaux blends in California may include Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel, or virtually any other grape deemed worthy by the winemaker. In Australia, Shiraz is a common component.
