Stag's Leap 'Artemis' Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Napa Valley California

2018 vintage – 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Malbec 1% Petit Verdot. Aged 15 months in 40% new oak, (35% French, 5% American), balance in older oak barrels. Arrtemis, 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. The 2018 ARTEMIS Cabernet Sauvignon delivers expressive aromas of ripe raspberry, dark cherry and blackberry along with hints of cedar and spice. The mid-palate is pleasant and round with flavors of dark chocolate, plum, dried fruit and toasted oak. The finish is rich and lingering.
