Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars was founded in 1970 with the purchase of a 40 acre property in the now famed Stag’s Leap District AVA in Napa Valley. The winery brought international recognition to California winemaking and the Napa Valley region when their 1973 S.L.V. Cabernet Sauvignon won the 1976 Paris Tasting, also known as the "Judgement of Paris."
Artemis, named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, is a wine that truly reflects its name. It’s the culmination of the winery's hunt for the finest grapes from Napa Valley which, when combined with estate-grown fruit, creates a Cabernet Sauvignon that expresses the regional character of Napa Valley with the signature style of Stag’s Leap Wine Cellars.
Aromas of black cherry, currants, berries and a hint of sweet oak follow through on to a silky textured palate with a long, lingering finish. Upon release this vintage recieved 94 Points from The Wine Advocate and will only improve with a few years' cellaring.
