Artesa Vineyards in the Carneros region of Napa/Sonoma is well known for producing outstanding wines from traditional Carneros grapes; Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. With their Elements line they branch out and source grapes from throughout the two valleys. We were lucky to grab this 2007 Cabernet, made from mountain-grown fruit; 71% form Napa and 29% from Sonoma. Produced in their state-of-the-art facility this Cab was aged 24 months in French oak before bottling. Wine Enthusiast Magazine called it "A really nice, classically structured Cabernet that can stand beside bottles costing far more. The blackberry and cherry flavors have a touch of sweet oak. With savory acidity, it's good to go now."

Rating: 88/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Finding good Cabernet Sauvignon for less than twenty dollars is no easy task, but Artesa has come up with a bonafide Best Buy here. Nicely composed and very keen on Cabernet fruit, it shows a sweet trim of root-beer-like spice from front to back and is balanced for early drinking. Its integral tannins firm without adding toughness, and, despite the fact that it should grow for a few years, it is accessible now and will serve well in the near term with juicy steaks hot off the grill. GOOD VALUE.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
