Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Artemis 2008
Deep garnet in color, the ARTEMIS Cabernet Sauvignon offers black cherry and cassis tones and a velvety texture to the tannins. The wine delivers great depth and fruit concentration without heaviness on the palate. The incredible combination of vineyards in this blend shows the Stag's Leap Wine Cellars signature style of balance, elegance and restraint. The bright fruit, firm structure and balanced acidity allow this wine to pair well with food. Enjoy it with braised short ribs or filet mignon with a Cabernet green peppercorn demi-glace.
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.
Excellent Cabernet at a reasonable price. Decanted for about an 1 hour. Noticeable tartaric acid crystals. Explosion of blackberry with the subtlety of a rich chocolate background. Earthy with herbs amongst developing tannins. Good now and well probably age well within the next 5 years.

External Reviews for Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Artemis
Notes of chocolate, blackberry and plum, and a waft of French oak that adds vanilla and clove aromas. Itrsquo;s hard to imagine prettier tannins, at once soft and luxurious. Call it a fine example from a light vintage.
A pretty nose of ripe raspberry and blackberries integrated with bittersweet chocolate and sweet-clove spice aromas and flavors.
Distinctive for its candied cherry, plum, strawberry and berryish flavors, with supple tannins and good length. Drink now through 2007.
A silky, inviting wine with lush fruit centered on black cherries and red plums, with a hint of blackberry and a sprinkling of chocolate and spice. the finish is long and rich, with echoes of the opening fruit.
A stunning success for its wonderfully extracted, complex meacute;lange of blackberry, cassis, sweet anise, plum and cured tobacco. Thatrsquo;s what rigorous selection can accomplish in a so-so vintage. The flavors are wrapped in the rich, sweet tannins and balanced acids yoursquo;d expect from this appellation. Might age, but best now through next year.
Dark, rich and concentrated, with flavors that veer into herb, mulch and blackberry. Mouthcoating tannins on the finish. Best from 2004 through 2009.
There is a ripeness and concentration to this wine that represents a new style. Although elegantly structured, the wine has lots of extraction and a new level of density. But it still has the briary character that is the trademark of Stagrsquo;s Leap Merlot, layered with aromas of fresh and dried herbs and flavors of black cherry, raspberry jam, lemon grass and Belgian hot cocoa. It is truly a wine with a sense of place.
