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.

What can I say sometimes you do get what you pay for. This is a very good wine, not amazing for the price but if you pour me a glass I'll have a smile on my face every time.

One of the many California "cult" Cabernet offerings, Artemis has never floated my boat. After many tastings and many vintages - mainly urged on by friends who swear by California Cabernets like this one and Opus One, I just can't get into it. Sometimes this winery is known as the "standing stag" as opposed to the "leaping stag".

Really like this wine-- dark purple red color, nice spicy finish, cassis, blackberry. Amazing with prime rib. If only I could afford it on a regular basis. And definitely cant afford the SLV or Fay wines...

Leading with a complex mix of cassis, coffee, sweet leather and a hint of forest-floor spice in the nose, this intriguing wine runs true to expectations on the palate with layered, equally complex Cabernet flavors.

Planted by the Warren Winiarski family in 1970 S.L.V. achieved international fame when three year old vines from the 1973 harvest produced a wine that shocked the wine world by triumphing over some of Frances greatest wines in a 1976 blind tasting known as the `Judgment of Paris.` Today this history-making vineyard continues to yield wines of multi-layered complexity structure and spicy intensity.

Merlot vines grow exceptionally in the Bale Loams of Stags? Leap: alluvial soils with volcanic ash minerality.Underneath the top layer exists a deeper layer of sandy loam laced with gravel and cobbles, allowing the kind of quick and thorough drainage

Wine Tasting NotesA vibrant nose of plum, cassis, nutmeg, black licorice and hints of rosemary greets the taster, with additional layers of raspberry, tealeaf, rose petals and vanilla. Concentrated flavors of black cherry, plum, cassis, baked cherry pie, cocoa, toast, and allspice intermingle with dusty tannins, hints of white pepper and tobacco. Perfectly balanced and firmly structured, this wine has significant aging potential and is ready to enjoy now with an herb-stuffed turkey accompanied by a velvety chestnut soup.
