Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Artemis 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

90 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): 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: 2012-2019. (Dec 2011)

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.

Fantastic wine! Some nice depth and structure. A bit heavier than I initially expected.....but I drank this after a 2005 Silver Oak Napa Cabernet that was much lighter.

This one has a lovely, deep purple color in the glass. The nose is absolutely lovely, with aromas of leather, oak, mint and something green that I can't quite put my finger on. The taste is just an explosion of wonderful flavors dancing around your mouth. I often talk about how flavors progress from your first taste, to midpalate to the finish, but this wine just shows a pronounced yet smooth transition through all those phases. At first I taste lovely fruit, cassis, ripe cherry and plum, which transitions to oak and leather, moving toward a fantastically earthy finish, which I honestly didn't expect.

Our 2009 ARTEMIS Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of black cherry cola, red cherry, vanilla bean and cocoa powder along with a touch of clove and sage.

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 Valleyrsquo;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.)
