Stag's Leap Wine Cellars 2013 Artemis, Cabernet Sauvignon, Napa Valley, Magnum, 1.5 Liter

Magnum, 1.5 Liter
Stag's Leap Wine Cellars and owner Warren Winarski can arguably claim to have put Napa Valley wines on the world map. It was about four decades ago when Stag's Leap Cabernet won the famous Judgment in Paris Tasting in May 1976, beating out the best classified Bordeaux made the world stop and look to Napa Valley. A third of a century later they're still producing some of the best wines in the world. The quality and character of the Stag's Leap wines also lead to the Stags Leap District being granted AVA status. That quality carries through their entire line and shows through in Artemis, their Napa Valley Cab that's a blend derived from a spectrum of fruit grown for Stag's Leap Wine Cellars by independent growers from across the Napa Valley (28% Atlas Peak District, 12% Battuello Vineyard in St. Helena and 11% Arcadia Vineyard in Coombsville) as well as 8% Estate fruit (FAY and S.L.V.). Each site lends its personality to the aroma, flavor, structure and texture of the finished wine. A very small amount of Merlot (4%) and Malbec (1%) were blended with the Cabernet Sauvignon for another layer of complexity. The wine was aged for 18 months in 29% new French oak and 16% new American oak. Winemaker Marcus Notaro's described the vintage as a winemaker's dream. "I couldn't have picked a better vintage to start with", he said. "This was one of the most even vintages I've ever experienced, giving ultimate quality and uniform ripeness." This is a wine that Wine Express customers have been enjoying since the 2006 vintage and this 2013 is outstanding. International Wine Report scored this 92 points saying "The 2013 'Artemis' by Stag's Leap Wine Cellars is an excellent release from this estate. This wine is sourced from 28% Atlas Peak District, 12% St. Helena, 11% Coombsville and 8% Estate fruit (FAY and S.L.V. vineyards). They chose to blend a small portion of Merlot (4%) and Malbec (1%) into this wine. The Cabernet was barrel aged for 18 months in 29% new French oak and 16% new American oak. Named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, as this Cabernet slowly opens it begins to release aromatics of black cherry, anise, black olive and creme de cassis. This leads to flavors of anise, creme de cassis, tar, sagebrush, milk chocolate and cherry cough syrup. Dense, layered, forward and polished, this Napa Cabernet drinks beautifully straight out of the bottle.(Best 2016-2030)"
