W&S 91 WA 90 WE 90 - Just released! Stags' Leap Wine Cellar's gorgeous Artemis Cabernet from the outstanding 2012 Napa Valley vintage. This is drinking really well now, but has plenty of backbone to age for a decade or so.
Description

Details

W&S 91 WA 90 WE 90 Pts - According to Wine & Spirits - Artemis is SLWC’s cabernet blend from purchased grapes and, in 2012, it’s broad and juicy, emphasizing full-on depths of plum-skin flavor and richness while retaining freshness in the fruit. Generous in its creamy texture, this is a match for filet mignon.

According to Robert Parker - "Already bottled, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis is similar to its siblings. It offers delicious blackcurrant fruit, not as much complexity as the Fay or S.L.V., but an attractive meaty, rich blackcurrant fruitiness, well-integrated wood, and hints of spice and oak. Fleshy and medium-bodied but also made in the elegant style sought by this winery, it should drink well for 10-15 years."

According to Wine Enthusiast - A rich, full-bodied wine with small amounts of Merlot and Malbec, this offers sizable tannins that wrap themselves around dark, brooding fruit and smoky oak. Blackberry and plum intertwine around luxurious chocolate and tobacco, complementing one another on the finish.

According to Antonio Galloni - "Crushed flowers, sweet red berries, mint and spices are all laced together in the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon ARTEMIS. Soft and silky throughout, the Artemis is a good choice for drinking now and over the next handful of years."

Tasting Notes - "This ARTEMIS Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of red currant and cranberry mixed with hints of vanilla and dried herbs. On the palate, the wine has a soft entry with dried cherry, blackberry, currant and savory herb flavors. The wine has a medium-bodied mouthfeel with round, satin-like tannins. Enjoy this wine with grilled tri-tip, braised short ribs or pasta with wild mushrooms and prosciutto." 14.5% ABV.

Cassis and vanilla.
Smooth blackberry, currant and cassis. A velvety polished finish. This is so very close and comparable to a Heitz Cabernet. Very enjoyable for a price that does not break the bank.
