1997 Artesa Reserve Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
Owned by the Raventos family of Spain, whose winemaking history dates to the mid-sixteenth century, the winery takes its name from the Catalan word for "handcrafted." Today, Artesa focuses on producing small, ultra-premium lots of the varietals for which the Carneros and the Napa Valley are best known - Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon.
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: A rich, seamless, beautifully integrated wine, brimming with spicy black cherry, blackberry, currant and plum and framed by pretty, toasty, vanilla-scented oak. Long, polished finish.
