Thank God. Dependable Stags Leap rescues wine #1. Creme de Mint, vanilla, licorice, melded together with nice grippy tannins that aren't bitter and uncomfortable. Solid.

The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Artemis is a very pretty wine that shows just how alluring the vintage is. Open-knit and silky, Artemis is so inviting today. Crushed flowers, hints of spice, leather, cedar and tobacco add attractive layers of nuance to this mid-weight, gracious Cabernet Sauvignon from Stag's Leap Wine Cellars. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2021)

Deep ruby with aromas of dark fruit, sweet spice and herbs. On the palate of this mostly Cab Sauv with a splash of Merlot, sat on French oak for 18 months (about 1/3 new), flavors of rich and juicy cherry and blackberry with savory spice and integrated toasty oak that gives this medium+ length wine a satisfying finish. Artemis should keep well for at least another 5+ years.

Prune juice, rose petal and potting soil. Lots of integrated oak. A little upfront texture, mouthfeel of sweet fruit that fades quickly.

Take some movie theatre buttered popcorn. Wring it out atop a blackberry crumble pie. That’s the nose. Fruit forwardly young. Definitely ageable. Blueberry and raspberry. Purchase to cellar for years to come.

So herbal. So obviously a bad vintage.

Napa cab, it shows. Expressive opulent nose of blackberries, ripe cherries and eucalypt. Body and weight, fine polished tannins
