2007 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #500413
Textbook Cabernet Sauvignon aromas and flavors of black cherry, blackberry, cedar and forest floor get a boost of complexity from hints of rosemary, gentle fresh herbs, baking spice and vanilla caramel. The wine is deep, dark and intense, yet also signature Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars: medium-full-bodied, firmly structured, powerful yet elegant, and with a long, succulent finish. Enjoy it with steak au poivre or grilled duck breast with braised escarole.

WINE ENTHUSIAST REVIEW: Here's a Cab to put in the cellar. It's big and rich and frankly sensational, just massive in blackberries, currants and sweet dark chocolate. The tannins are fierce, but very fine, and the overall balance is impeccable. Too astringent now, even with decanting, but should easily improve in the bottle throughout the next decade.
ARTEMIS, named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, is a wine that truly reflects its name. It’s the culmination of winemaker Nicki Pruss’ search for superior-quality Napa Valley grapes which, when combined with estate-grown fruit, meld into a Cabernet Sauvignon that mirrors the depth, structure and elegance of our limited-production estate wines. Whereas our Estate Cabernet Sauvignons showcase the distinctive characteristics of each vineyard, ARTEMIS demonstrates how astute grape selection and skillful blending can create a wine that represents the sum of Napa Valley’s best Cabernet Sauvignon parts. Imagine taking an aerial tour of Napa Valley, flying over the patchwork of vineyards that have made the valley and its wines famous. The grapes for ARTEMIS are sourced from a handful of these sites, located between Carneros and Calistoga, including our estate Fay Vineyard in the Stags Leap District. We purchase grapes only from independent growers whose vineyards are farmed to our rigorous standards; each site lends its personality to the aroma, flavor, structure and mouth-feel of the finished wine. Small amounts of Merlot and Petit Verdot were blended with the Cabernet Sauvignon for another layer of complexity. The 2007 ARTEMIS was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels (34% new) and six months in bottle, prior to its release.
