Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Iconic Napa winery Stag's Leap Wine Cellars' Artemis highlights exactly why this storied winery, and this wine, are internationally renowned! From winning the Judgement of Paris as the best Cabernet Sauvignon in 1976, to the launch of Artemis in 2001, Stag's Leap Wine Cellars has caught the attention of many around the world with their outstanding Cabernet. Artemis 2018 is a blend of 98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 1% Petit Verdot, and 1% Malbec, from some of Napa's finest vineyards. Artemis' deep colour and expressive bouquet shows ripe dark berries, blueberry pie, chocolate, graphite, and scorched earth. It's big, it's textured, and it's incredibly well balanced! Dark fruit, spice, savoury notes with a distinct textured mineral finish make this gorgeous Napa Cab an ideal pairing with charcoal grilled steak tenderloin with Port reduction and crumbled Blue Haze cheese on top. Enjoy now or cellar 10-15 years and enjoy the evolution of this wine. Tasted June 2021. 94+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Stunning quintessential California Cabernet Sauvignon, fittingly part of the LCBO "Essentials" collection. Aromas of black currant and raspberry, with notes of warm earth, coffee, mocha and some savoury hints. Full bodied, with some soft tannins and bright acidity. Fruit is dark and brooding on the palate, ripe but not jammy at all, lots of structure, and nice balance of acidity and structure. Overall this wine is rich, balanced, and refined. Beautiful! A great wine to enjoy on a special evening.
