Elements By Artesa Napa-Sonoma Cabernet 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of mostly Bordeaux varietals with a touch of Syrah, this smooth, silky wine coats the palate with intense fruit flavors - dark cherry, cassis - enriched with milk chocolate and toffee. Sweet oak chimes in to create a beautiful harmony, and fine tannins lengthen the supple texture of this well-balanced, full bodied wine. 78% Cabernet Sauvignon, 12% Cabernet Franc, 5% Merlot, 2% Malbec, 2% Syrah, 1% Petit Verdot

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

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."
