Solid 'entry' Cabernet from Stags Leap. Like the merlot there was caramel and spice on the nose ... some leather as well. Lots of black cherry in the taste with good structure. I like this wine.

Definite Napa nose of earthy black fruit - not as intense as the estate bottlings. Some lingering acidity on the finish.

The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis exhibits notes of black currants, plum, licorice, roasted herbs, and some new oak. It was one of the more aromatic wines of the group, but when it hits the palate, some rather harsh tannins, obvious herbaceousness, and jagged acidity kick in. I would drink this wine sooner rather than later, as it is likely to dry out, although the acids will keep it alive for some time to come.

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and owner Warren Winarski can arguably claim to have put Napa Valley wines on the world map. Winning the famous Paris Tasting of 1976, beating out the best classified bordeaux made the world stop and look to Napa Valley. The quality and character of the Stag’s leap wines also lead to its being granted AVA status. That quality carries through their entire line and shows through in Artemis, their Napa Valley Cab that’s a blend of estate grapes from Fay, SLV and Arcadia vineyards with grapes from other top quality Napa growers. 92% Cabernet Sauvignon is blended with 8% Merlot. The wine is aged 18 months in French oak barrels, one third new. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 90 points saying “Made almost exclusively from Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a deeply colored, ripely rich young wine that shows masses of blackberries. There are supporting notes of pain grillé, anise, violets, anise and smoky oak, with a firm grounding of minerals.” Very Limited!

Winery notes- Focused and complex the wine opens with aromas and flavors of black fruitblackberry currant and plumthat 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.

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:

Wine Tasting Notes A 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.
