            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => Youthful nose of sweet blackcurrant jam and black cherry with floral and cedar undertones. Dry, with high acid and grippy tannins; pronounced and dense flavours of sweet spiced fruit with chocolate and wood notes. Rich, ripe and full flavoured this wine is incredibly complex and a quintessential top-end Californian Cabernet.  Presented in a wooden box.

            [WineMakingNotes] => "ARTEMIS, named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, is a wine that truly reflects its name. It’s the culmination of our hunt for the finest grapes from Napa Valley which, when combined with estate-grown fruit, combine to create a Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses the regional character of Napa Valley with the signature style of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. This approach results in a wine of lush fruit flavors balanced by extraordinary structure and elegance. Whereas our Estate Cabernet Sauvignons showcase the distinctive characteristics of each vineyard, ARTEMIS demonstrates how astute grape selection and skillful blending can create a wine that represents the sum of Napa Valley’s best Cabernet Sauvignon parts. Imagine taking an aerial tour of Napa Valley, flying over the 
patchwork of vineyards that have made the valley and its 
wines famous. The grapes for ARTEMIS are sourced from a 
unique collection of these sites. The 2021 blend is derived 
from a spectrum of fruit grown for Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars by 
independent growers from across the Napa Valley including: 
51% Atlas Peak District; 14% Battuello Vineyard in St. Helena, 
12% Arcadia Vineyard in Coombsville and 5% Twin Creeks 
Vineyard in Wooden Valley, along with some grapes from 
the Stags Leap District. Each site lends its personality to the 
aroma, flavor, structure and texture of the finished wine.
This wine is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon with 1% Cabernet Franc, 
0.5% Malbec and 0.5% Merlot for added layers of complexity. 
The wine was aged for 15 months in 33% new French Oak 
and 67% older French oak barrels. The wine was very lightly 
filtered at bottling."


Blend:
99% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Merlot
Aging:

About this product +

Producer >

Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is a Napa Valley estate rooted in the legends of the Stags Leap District and Napa Valley’s ascent to global wine recognition. Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars was established in 1970 with the purchase of the S.L.V. vineyard. Only six years later, the 1973 S.L.V. Estate Cabernet Sauvignon was awarded the highest honor at the Judgment of Paris blind tasting, besting First Growth Bordeaux Chateaux. This achievement solidified Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars and the Napa Valley as places that crafted world-class wines. Today, Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars is a quality benchmark for California Cabernet Sauvignon. It offers unrivaled Napa Valley wine experiences where guests enjoy first-rate hospitality and expansive vineyard overlooks that are perfectly paired with some of the most widely-recognized and coveted Napa Valley wines in the world.

"ARTEMIS, named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, is a wine that truly reflects its name. It’s the culmination of our hunt for the finest grapes from Napa Valley which, when combined with estate-grown fruit, combine to create a Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses the regional character of Napa Valley with the signature style of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars. This approach results in a wine of lush fruit flavors balanced by extraordinary structure and elegance. Whereas our Estate Cabernet Sauvignons showcase the distinctive characteristics of each vineyard, ARTEMIS demonstrates how astute grape selection and skillful blending can create a wine that represents the sum of Napa Valley’s best Cabernet Sauvignon parts. Imagine taking an aerial tour of Napa Valley, flying over the patchwork of vineyards that have made the valley and its wines famous. The grapes for ARTEMIS are sourced from a unique collection of these sites. The 2021 blend is derived from a spectrum of fruit grown for Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars by independent growers from across the Napa Valley including: 51% Atlas Peak District; 14% Battuello Vineyard in St. Helena, 12% Arcadia Vineyard in Coombsville and 5% Twin Creeks Vineyard in Wooden Valley, along with some grapes from the Stags Leap District. Each site lends its personality to the aroma, flavor, structure and texture of the finished wine. This wine is 98% Cabernet Sauvignon with 1% Cabernet Franc, 0.5% Malbec and 0.5% Merlot for added layers of complexity. The wine was aged for 15 months in 33% new French Oak and 67% older French oak barrels. The wine was very lightly filtered at bottling." Blend: 99% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Merlot Aging: 14 months; 50% new French oak, 4% new American oak, balance in older French oak barrels
