This 2010 Artemis Cabernet Sauvignon offers pleasing aromas of black
cherries, red plums, violets, nutmeg and sandalwood along with a hint
of dried herbs. The cherry and plum notes carry over onto the palate

entry with good mid-palate structure with fine-grained tannins that
lead to a lingering berry-cherry finish.
Enjoy this wine with grilled tri-tip, braised short ribs or pasta with wild mushrooms and prosciutto.
