Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon, $39.15-$58.00 (Seen on-line for $31.99), 93 points, is a remarkable gently sweet, lush, approachable Cabernet with deep magenta colors, a fair aroma of bright red cherry, cedar, and a bit of alcohol (14.5%), which does carry over onto the palate in a medium to full bodied wine, having flavors of licorice, espresso, and plum, but the best part of this wine, to me, is just how sleek and silky it is, as a good chocolate melts in your mouth, so does this wine sort of melt into your mouth, but the finish is yet long and still rich with a bounty of tannin that seem to say, "drink now, drink for years to come."

Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon is a bit expensive, but for those important occasions, especially with those who like big Cabs. this is a good choice.
This wine scores very well with almost everyone.

  1. WE scored this wine 94 points, the first 25 tasters for Cellar Tracker has scores ranging from 87-95 points, but once again Wine Spectator has out-done themselves and scored the 2007 Artemis 80 points; in the same issue they had no Rodney Strong Cab under 87 points (I like Rodney Strong) and no Louis M. Martini under 84 points. If anything WS confuses me more and more with their scores. Either I have NO taste for wine, or WS is up to something quite strange, maybe a cooked bottle, but a wine of this quality is labeled almost undrinkable in my book.
