A perennial favorite on restaurant wine lists, Artemis is generous in flavor and velvety in texture. Aromas of cassis and caramel rise and give way to earthy notes of black olive, black pepper, and truffles. Classic flavors of cassis and black cherry fill the mouth as notes of violets and vanilla linger on the finish.

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: Stags' Leap Winery emphasizes structure in their red wines, a commitment reflected in the mouth-filling mid-palate expression of this classic Napa Valley Merlot. A cool, wet spring made 2003 a late year, pushing the pick-dates back into late October and November. The long hang-time and lower yields combined to form Merlot of uncommon power and complexity. The wine spent 21 months in French oak, then was blended in with small percentages of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc to lend the wine added complexity and length. The result is a full-bodied Merlot expressing black cherry, cocoa bean and rum-soaked raisin aromas. There are notes of black plum, nutmeg and vanilla cream on the mid-palate. The tannins are smooth and earthy and the wine is complete and balanced with a long finish that warms you on a chilly night!
