Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Stag's Leap Wine Cellars|
The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis is a blend of 91% Cabernet Sauvignon, 6% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot and 1% Malbec. Deep purple-black in color, it opens with notions of crushed black cherries, warm blackberries and mulberries with hints of unsmoked cigars, fragrant soil and wild sage plus a waft of allspice. Medium to full-bodied, it fills the palate with expressive black berry and earthy layers with a frame of grainy tannins and just enough freshness, finishing with an herbal lift.
This wine is thick, rich and decadently soft with a cherry-vanilla sweetness on the nose that follows through on the full-bodied palate.
