Wine Maker's Notes
Our Napa Valley collection of wines are crafted with the same approach to winemaking as our limited-production estate wines, resulting in wines of supple power and elegance. In fact, fruit from our estate vineyards forms the focal point of this blend and provides the stylistic inspiration for this wine. ARTEMIS, named after the Greek goddess of the hunt, represents our targeted approach of establishing this wine’s origin, style, and character as a gateway to our renowned estate wines.
Sensuous aromas of rich, dark chocolate, black cherries, and espresso immediately rise from the glass. As the wine opens, look for more subtle notes of violets, nutmeg, and truffles. The aromas carry over to the palate with additional flavors of cassis, orange peel, and clove. This medium to full-bodied wine has fine grained and smooth pebbly tannins. Its firm structure and fine balance make it a perfect accompaniment to classic chop house fare. Try this wine with any fine cut of steak and you will be delighted
