The 2009 Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon offers inviting aromas of black cherry cola, red cherry, vanilla bean and cocoa powder along with a touch of clove and sage. These notes carry over onto the palate and combine with flavors of milk chocolate, toasty oak and hint of wintergreen. The wine has a smooth texture with great depth and fine-grained tannins. The vibrant fruit, great structure and balanced acidity make this wine pair extremely well with hardy dishes such as braised short ribs or filet mignon with a Cabernet and wild mushroom demi-glace.

Blend: 86% Cabernet Sauvignon and 14% Merlot
alcohol by volume: 14.5%
