Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The heart of the ARTEMIS blend is composed of fruitfrom our estate vineyards. Cabernet Sauvignon from ARCADIA VINEYARD gives the wine tannin and structural support. FAY contributes a generous perfume, while the wine’s complexity and concentration benefit from a small but significant addition of S.L.V. fruit. Then, to complement our estate fruit’s distinctive qualities of flavor and structure, we turn to independent Napa Valley growers whose vineyards meet our rigorous farming standards.

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.
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by

aromas of leather, roasted coffee, scorched chocolate and herbs, this unique offering smacks ever so faintly of Syrah and may not fit the fruity Cabernet model, but its complexity is beyond any argument. It is smooth and supple in feel with plenty of pala

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars and owner Warren Winarski can arguably claim to have put Napa Valley wines on the world map. It was exactly 25 years ago this month when Stag's Leap Cabernet won the famous Judgment in Paris Tasting in May 1976, beating out the best classified Bordeaux made the world stop and look to Napa Valley. 25 Years later they're still producing some of the best wines in the world. The quality and character of the Stag's Leap wines also lead to the Stags Leap District 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.This 2008 scored 95 points in Wine Enthusiast Magazine who said "This Cabernet is a blend of estate and purchased fruit. In a successful year, it rivals Stag’s Leap’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 2008 S.L.V. is the 35th vintage since the 1973 S.L.V. won the Paris Tasting in 1976. This rich and generous Cabernet Sauvignon opens with crushed blackberry and ripe plum aromas, accented by notes of anise, fennel and cedar.

According to Robert Parker - 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.
