Artesa Cabernet Sauvignon 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright wild blackberry and cherry are complimented with abundant spice. Black pepper, clove, allspice, vanilla, nutmeg and a hint of cedar smoke. Finely knit together with a silky mid-palate, this wine has sufficiant tannin backbone for aging. This wine will be delicious for the next five to ten years.

Artesa is Napa's newest, most exciting winery. Our architecturally-acclaimed facility opened as Codorniu Napa in 1991, dedicated solely to méthode champenoise sparkling wine production. But in 1997, with the arrival of a world-class winemaker and a $10 million conversion, the winery shifted focus dramatically. Artesa was born with the inaugural release of ultra-premium still wines in September 1999. Artesa (ahr TESS uh) means "craftsman" and connotes "handcrafted" in Catalan, language of Barcelona and our owner, Codorníu, one of the world's largest and oldest wineries. The Codorníu Group actually consists of eight spectacular wineries whose wines are enjoyed daily in over 100 countries around the world. So, while we are Napa's newest, our heritage is rich. We share five centuries of history with 15 generations of a remarkable winemaking family. Read less

An amazing bottle of wine for its price. Both wine snobs and casual drinkers will love it.

Pretty middle of the road for a Napa Cabernet in this price range. Though it is of high quality and enjoyable overall, it is nothing extraordinary.

This one grew on me. Good on its own or with dinner.

Wine Tasting NotesBalanced from start to finish, this wine has bright flavors of blackberry, raspberry and cassis accented with chocolate, cinnamon, vanilla, clove and smoke. The seamless oak integration enables this wine to glide like satin through the mouth. A touch of crisp acid keeps the fruit fresh now and for years to come. This wine will drink superbly for up to 10 years. Our Napa Valley Cabernet brings an extracted fullness to the wine and our Alexander Valley Cabernet adds intense fruit. Enjoy this synergy of Napa and Sonoma's finest Cabernet.

This hand crafted blend from the finest vineyards in Napa 56% and Sonoma 44% Counties was aged for 20 months in small French oak cooperage. Enjoy the supple intensity of this Cabernet Sauvignon.



Bright wild blackberry and cherry are complimented with abundant spice. Black pepper, clove, allspice, vanilla, nutmeg and a hint of cedar smoke. Finely knit together with a silky mid-palate, this wine has sufficiant tannin backbone for aging. This wine will be delicious for the next five to ten years.
