Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon 2020
|Region||California, Napa Valley|
|Brand||Stag's Leap Wine Cellars|
The 2020 ARTEMIS Cabernet Sauvignon offers intriguing aromas of olive, espresso, black licorice and red fruit. The wine is medium to full bodied, with a smooth mouthfeel filled with berry and dark chocolate flavors.
Enjoy this Cabernet Sauvignon with grilled tri-tip, braised short ribs, or pasta with wild mushrooms and prosciutto.
This plush, delicious and fruit-drenched wine pairs wonderful black fruit nuances of crème de cassis and black cherries with subtle, layered oak spices of new leather, tobacco and graphite, while a creamy texture makes the mouthfeel almost irresistible. Best from 2025.
The violet lift to the nose is knitting well with the ripe blackberries, chocolate and sweet spices. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, with dense yet creamy tannins adhering to the dark fruit. Fleshy and polished, with a pretty finish. A solid effort for the vintage.
The deep purple-hued 2020 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis (there’s 1% Merlot in the blend) is classy stuff, offering ample plum and blackberry-like fruits, some scorched earth and tobacco, medium to full body, good mid-palate density, and ripe yet firm tannins. It’s incredibly well done in the vintage.
