Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis Napa Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Napa Valley collection of wines is crafted with the same approach to winemaking as their limited-production estate wines, resulting in wines of supple power and elegance. In fact, fruit from their estate vineyards provides the stylistic inspiration for this wine. Stag's Leap Wine Cellars ARTEMIS, named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, represents our targeted approach of establishing this wine's origin, style, and character as a gateway to their renowned estate wines.Focused and complex, the Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis opens with aromas and flavors of black fruit-blackberry, currant, and plum-that slowly give way to layers of nutmeg, rosemary, grilled game, and warm pie crust. This firmly structured and full-bodied wine gains depth and richness through the finish. Enjoy this wine with filet mignon with green peppercorn cream sauce or braised veal shanks with green olives and capers.

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars:
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars is considered one of Napa Valley's first-growths. We were founded by Warren Winiarski and his family in 1970 and are best known for our estate-grown Cabernet Sauvignons — CASK 23, S.L.V., and FAY. Over the years, our wines have become some of the most highly regarded and collected wines worldwide. They are fashioned to express classic elegance, structure, and ageability, and to reflect the place in which they are grown.

This Cabernet has aromas of cassis and carmael rise and give way to earthy notes of black olive, black pepper, and truffles. With classic flavors of cassis and black cherry, this full bodied wine fills the mouths with notes of violets and vanilla leading to a lingering finish. Stag's Leap Website

Tasting Notes:This ARTEMIS Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of red currant and cranberry mixed with hints of vanilla and dried herbs. On the palate, the wine has a soft entry with dried cherry, blackberry, currant and savory herb flavors. The wine has a medium-bodied mouthfeel with round, satin-like tannins. Enjoy this wine with grilled tri-tip, braised short ribs or pasta with wild mushrooms and prosciutto. - WineryARTEMIS, named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, is a wine that truly reflects its name. Its the culmination of our hunt for the finest grapes from Napa Valley which, when combined with estate-grown fruit, combine to create a Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses the regional character of Napa Valley with the signature style of Stags Leap Wine Cellars. This approach results in a wine of lush fruit flavors balanced by extraordinary structure and elegance. Whereas our Estate Cabernet Sauvignons showcase the distinctive characteristics of each vineyard, ARTEMIS demonstrates how astute grape selection and skillful blending can create a wine that represents the sum of Napa Valleys best Cabernet Sauvignon parts.Vineyards & Winemaking:Imagine taking an aerial tour of Napa Valley, flying over the patchwork of vineyards that have made the valley and its wines famous. The grapes for ARTEMIS are sourced from a unique collection of these sites. The 2011 blend is derived from a spectrum of fruit grown for Stags Leap Wine Cellars by independent growers from across the Napa Valley. Each site lends its personality to the aroma, flavor, structure and texture of the finished wine. A small amount of Merlot (14%) was blended with the Cabernet Sauvignon for another layer of complexity. The wine was aged for 16 months in a combination of new and used French oak.Blend:86% Cabernet Sauvignon14% MerlotBarrel Aging: 16 months, 35% new French oakAlcohol: 13.5%pH: 3.66Total Acidity: 0.55 g/100 mL
