The 2017 Stag's Leap Wine Cellars Artemis exhibits its recipe for success- brand recognition and high quality. TASTING NOTES: This is the best Napa Valley category in its price category. Its aroma and flavors are spot-on. Enjoy is lovely and elegant red and black fruits, hints of oak, and enchanting spices with savory, oven-baked wild game birds.

Expressive aromas of dark berries, currants, raspberry sorbet, nutmeg and baking spices. The wine has a rich entry with round tannins and plush mouthfeel with lingering flavors of dark fruit and subtle oak undertones. ~ Winemaker Notes
