From magnum. Just awesome on the nose with deep olivy fruit, smoky chipotle notes and layers of earth, leather, ash and herb that kept evolving. In the mouth this was round and perfectly mature with all the subtle spices and herb of the nose appearing on the velvetty palate. The tannins have mostly melted away leaving a broad palate impression well supported by the wines integrated acidity. I loved this. A great bottle. 95pts

The classic. You just can't go wrong when you order a bottle of this baby. It's not too big, a little jam and fruit but smooth as a baby's bottom. Yum.

a little overpriced and young...had a bottle recently @ capital grill in NYC and was disappointed...for $120 i felt it could have been more complex...our 2nd bottle was half the price and matched much better with our steaks (btw it was a pirramimma shiraz from australia...amazing) but i digress...stags leap overrated

Over the hill, quickly put it aside during Thanksgiving dinner. Would have been interesting to tast it a day later (but we were travelling so we left it there)

Well balanced, deep blackberry flavors. Warm, soft tannins, nice and oaky with big black fruit flavors and a bit of leather. Drinking beautifully right now.

From magnum. Aging well, although there's a hollowness in the mid palette as the fruit fades. However, whats left is very nice - dusty tannins balance the remaining red fruit and you're left with a very enjoyable, persistent balanced wine.

Planted in 1970, this vineyard achieved international fame when three-year-old vines from the 1973 harvest produced a wine that stunned the wine world when it bested some of France s greatest wines in a 1976 blind tasting known as the Judgment of Paris.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon SLV Estate shows off deep layers of expressive black fruit, licorice, white flowers and tar. Here, too, the influence of Antinori is felt in the wine's polish, even if the real leap in quality does not take place until 2010 for this bottling. Layers of fruit build effortlessly to the big, dramatic finish. This is a hugely delicious wine with plenty of intensity and sheer personality. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. Rich and inviting, this Cabernet Sauvignon offers powerful blackberry and black cherry aromas with hints of cigar box and spice. The black fruit carries over onto the palate and is accented by notes of anise, mandarin orange, violets and cassis. The tannins are smooth and fine-grained, allowing the wine to flow smoothly across the palate. The wine has great acidity and a persistent fruit-driven finish. Serve S.L.V. with a dry-aged porterhouse steak, grilled game or a wild mushroom tart. - WineryBarrel Aging:20 months84% new French oak...

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.

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."

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
