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.

The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis reveals slightly more richness and density than the 2007. The aromatics are similar in this medium-bodied, balanced, pleasant wine. It should drink well for a decade.

This Cabernet is a blend of estate and purchased fruit. In a successful year, it rivals Stagrsquo;s Leaprsquo;s best wines, including Cask 23, and 2008 was a very successful year. Blended with 2% Merlot, and aged in lots of new French oak, the wine is, in a word, stunning. Rich, flashy blackberry and dark chocolate flavors are anchored by an earthiness suggesting cured olives and dried herbs. Delicious now, this beauty should develop additional complexities throughout the decade.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis shows lovely depth and richness in its expressive dark fruit, flowers, tar and licorice. The influence of Antinori is already felt in this beautiful wine. A supple, generous finish rounds things out nicely. The difference between this 2009 and 2008 is night and day. Anticipated maturity: 2012andndash;2019.

This has lots of ripe, plush blackberry, olive and dark chocolate flavors. It packs a punch that lasts into a long, spicy finish. Delicious, classy, and lovely to drink now, although it will evolve through at least 2018.

A warm, Mediterranean style of cabernet, this is sunny and stony with an herbal spice. Tart black cherry fruit warms the palate, as does the rustic grip of the tannins. Is it old-fashioned in the sense of Italianate styles of the past, or is it a less stylized, unmediated expression of Napa Valleyandrsquo;s contemporary climate? Something to ponder over a glass and a bowl of pasta with boar sugo.

Medium red-ruby. Currant, leather, licorice, tar and a strong herbal element on the nose and palate. A supple, smooth midweight with moderate depth and nuance. A hint of leathery rusticity limited my enthusiasm. Finishes with slightly drying tannins and decent length. (My second bottle was even drier.)

Black cherry cola, red cherry, vanilla bean and cocoa powder along with a touch of clove and sage. These notes carry over onto the palate and combine with flavors of milk chocolate and toasty oak.

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
