Stag’s Leap Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon
Very rarely do I recommend a wine. In fact, this might be my first wine recommendation. My friend Stewart brought over a bottle of Stag’s Leap Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon, vintage 2005 to my most recent dinner party. He liked it so much that he actually bought a case to drink on special occasions. This cab is a Napa Valley wine and during this time of the year, you might have better luck finding a 2006 vintage over the 2005 vintage. From the website:
“Focused and complex, the wine opens with aromas and flavors of black fruit—blackberry, currant, and plum—that slowly give way to layers of nutmeg, rosemary, grilled game, and warm pie crust. This firmly structured and full-bodied wine gains depth and richness through the finish. Enjoy this wine with filet mignon with green peppercorn cream sauce or braised veal shanks with green olives and capers.”
I’m not a wine connoisseur, but when I can’t stop drinking a certain type of wine, then I figure it’s pretty good.
Retail price is $55.00 per bottle.
