Stag’s Leap ‘Artemis’ Cabernet Sauvignon 2020, Napa Valley California

2020 vintage – 99.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, .5% Cabernet Franc. Aged 15 months in 42% new French oak, 6% new American oak, 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 2020 Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon delivers expressive aromas of mocha, chocolate covered cherry, crushed raspberry, olive and thyme. Rich and flavorful, the wine is well-structured with fine grained tannins. The palate has a pleasing brambleberry note that leads to a long finish with a hint of oak spice.
