Wine Advocate 87 points - Shows the richness and balance of Stag’s Leap Cabernets, with firm tannins housing solid flavors of blackberries, black cherries and black currants. Blended with 12% Merlot, it’s voluptuous and delicious to drink now, and should develop bottle complexity over the next eight years. - Cellar Selection
Our Napa Valley collection of wines is crafted with the same approach to winemaking as our limited-production estate wines, resulting in wines of supple power and elegance. In fact, fruit from our estate vineyards provides the stylistic inspiration for this wine. ARTEMIS, named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, provides a strong link to the origin, style, and character of our renowned estate wines.
|The heart of the ARTEMIS blend is composed of fruit from 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.
