Artesa Napa-Sonoma Cabernet 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Balanced 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.

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

A pleasant breadth of scents launches with herbs and spices, including sage and rosemary, along with hints of raspberry. Palate is centered around herb-driven red fruits, primarily raspberry. Caramel and vanilla take prominent roles at 2 hours. A nice acidity keeps the finish tangy and enriches the red fruit medley. This is a light, but very enjoyable cabernet.
