Domaine Artefact

2017 Carignan

Red Wine

The aromas of this wine are chock full of red and black currants, cloves, candied ginger and nutmeg with an underpinning of ripe cranberries. In the mouth, currants and spice mingle with dark berries leading to a lingering berry pie finish. Enjoy Carignan’s versatility and serve with grilled, braised or roasted fowl, game or beef.
Carignan gets a bad rap, historically, it has been over cropped and produced lackluster wines. However, at Domaine Artefact, we are excited to introduce low yielding, fully ripened fruit which is paramount to expressing Carignan’s unique flavor profile. With proper vineyard management, Carignan produces wines full of red and black currants in youth and with aging, characteristics of earth, truffles, barnyard, licorice, and spice. The varietal has a great capacity to retain good acidity, therefore, when harvested at the correct pH and Brix levels, the wine that is produced is both refreshing as well as complex.

Our Carignan comes to us from Paso Robles and was vinified by noted female winemaker Signe Zoller. We added 14% of our Cote Rotie Syrah to this wine to enhance the wines’ intensity and body. We wanted to introduce this varietal to our customers while our grapevines mature and our wine from Paso Roble’s “Whalebone” vineyard continues to age in barrel. We love this varietal and are really pleased to offer a sneak peak of what is to come from Domaine Artefact!
