Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis
Stag's Leap approaches their Napa Valley collection of wines the same way they do their limited production gems. The foundation for this blend comes from Arcadia Vineyard, though the wine's elegant perfume is distinctly Fay Vineyard and a small addition of S.L.V. fruit adds complexity and concentration. The "Artemis" is velvety and generous, with aromas of cassis and caramel with notes of black olive, black pepper and truffles. On the palate, classic claret flavors of cassis and black cherry are lifted by notes of violets and vanilla. Try this on a cold winter's night with a hearty stew worthy of this wine's namesake, Artemis, the Greek goddess of the hunt.
