Artesa Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
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.
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.
