Wine Maker Notes
Made almost exclusively from Cabernet Sauvignon, this is a deeply colored, reipely rich young wine that shows masses of blackberries. There are supporting notes of paine grille, anise, violets, anise and smoky oak, with a firm grounding of minerals. Shows some tartness and astringency that strongly suggest time in the cellar.
The heart of the ARTEMIS blend is composed of fruit from our estate vineyards. Cabernet Sauvignon from ARCADIA VINEYARD gives the wine tannin and structural support. FAY contributes a generous perfume, while the wine’s complexity and concentration benefit from a small but significant addition of S.L.V. fruit. Then, to complement our estate fruit’s distinctive qualities of flavor and structure, we turn to independent Napa Valley growers whose vineyards meet our rigorous farming standards.
