The 2009 Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of black cherry cola, red cherry, vanilla bean and cocoa powder along with a touch of clove and sage. These notes carry over onto the palate and combine with flavors of milk chocolate, toasty oak and hint of wintergreen. The wine has a smooth texture with great depth and fine-grained tannins.
deep dark ruby colour. dark fruit, spice and cola on the nose. rich smooth velvety, almost chocolate like up front then red fruits start to come through with dark spice (almost clove like) followed by a fantastically long finish with obvious heat from alcohol but all superbly balanced, one of the few wines where alcohol is very noticeable but very well integrated and enhancing the experience rather than detracting from it. rather special.
