Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Artemis, named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, is a wine that truly reflects its name. It’s the culmination of our hunt for the finest grapes from Napa Valley which, when combined with estate-grown fruit, combine to create a Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses the regional character of Napa Valley with the signature style of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars.
The 2016 Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon has expressive aromas of dark berries, currants, raspberry sorbet, nutmeg and baking spices. The wine has a rich entry with round tannins and plush mouthfeel with lingering flavors of dark fruit and subtle oak undertones.
Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon with grilled tri-tip, braised short ribs, or pasta with wild mushrooms and prosciutto.
Blend: 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 1% Malbec
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
Very attractive, violet-like floral character with fresh, leafy notes and upbeat blackcurrants in this opulent cab. Medium to full body, fine tannins and a gorgeously long finish. Drink or hold.
This is a pan–Napa Valley blend with only one percent coming from SLWC’s estate vineyards, but Marcus Notaro managed to fashion the wine so the tannins parallel the dark-chocolate-ganache character of fine Stags Leap District cabernet. Layer that over fresh raspberry, blackberry and sweet plum flavors, tighten it up with some smoky oak tannins, and you’ll have a sense of what’s in store when you open this bottle, whether now or in three years.
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."
