The Artesa Napa Valley Limited Release Carbernet Sauvignon 2011 is a delicate, well-balanced red wine that reflects the diverse Napa Valley terroir. The 2011 growing season was tumultuous, with a cold wet spring and a cool summer. The careful handling of the harvested grapes brought out the hard-won flavors of this unique vintage and created a beautiful red wine. Aromas of cassis, blackberry, and dark cherry mingle with alluring notes of cocoa. Pure fruit flavors follow on the palate and are balanced with a lingering hint of oak. The texture is supple and silky.
