Artesa Merlot Napa/Sonoma 2004

Member Review by Stallion:

Nice Merlot that opened well. I find that all Artesa red wines have a "smokey" taste. It's unique to their style, and I do like it. Nice medium body, and a solid finish. Just give it at least an hour to open. Cheers!

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

Bright cherry and raspberry pervade this complex layered wine. Cinnamon, clove, leather, cigar box, and chocolate serve as delicious counterpoints to the red berry fruit. A serious wine with excellent color and firm yet silky tannins.
