94 WE spicy, pepper, not fruit forward, medium bodied, dark purple color and at rim. appropriately dry. can taste alcohol? 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 handful of these sites, located between Carneros and Calistoga, including our estate Fay Vineyard in the Stags Leap District. We purchase grapes only from independent growers whose vineyards are farmed to our rigorous standards; each site lends its personality to the aroma, flavor, structure and mouth-feel of the finished wine. Small amounts of Merlot and Petit Verdot were blended with the Cabernet Sauvignon for another layer of complexity. The 2007 ARTEMIS was aged for 18 months in French oak barrels (34% new) and six months in bottle, prior to its release.
Deep burgundy in colour with rich black fruit and cassis. A slight touch of mint on the palate but with juicy black fruits too. Opened about half an hour before drinking which really helped the tannins.
