Vera Czerny rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Familiar and very nice aroma of dark fruit, with an addition of spices from the oak. On the palate the wine was much softer than I remember when tasted back in 2007. Fruit was nice a bright - hints of blackberry, dark plum mixed with a delicate spices such as glove, cinnamon or nutmeg.

Intense wine, with perfectly velvety tannins was a great compliment to a piece of steak I was having with it. Some wines, opened too early, have this sharpness about them (harsh tannins) that some admire, I not so much. It could be overpowering. Not just food, but sometimes the fruit it selves.

Artesa was nothing like that. I loved it, it held up to the expectations. Also, since it's not just Napa fruit, the price tag is slightly more friendlier. Therefore, I would call Artesa Napa/Sonoma Cabernet Sauvignon a great value!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
