Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon 2019
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Stag's Leap Wine Cellars|
A terrific, well-priced Napa Cabernet, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis has a great nose of pure cassis fruits as well as tobacco, spring flowers, and a touch wet stone and graphite. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, it has a good sense of elegance and ripe tannins. Drink bottles over the coming 10-15 years.
The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis is a blend of 99.5% Cabernet Sauvignon and .5% Cabernet Franc. Deep garnet-purple in color, it springs forth with notes of black raspberries, redcurrant jelly and fresh blackberries, plus hints of dried mint, damp soil and crushed rocks. The medium to full-bodied palate gives up tons of juicy black and red berry flavors with great freshness and sturdy, grainy tannins, finishing earthy.
A ripe, polished crowd-pleaser, with a suave layer of toasted vanilla that melds easily into a core of cassis, cherry puree and violet. Drink now through 2027. 90,000 cases made.
