Domaine Artefact

2018 Carignan

Red Wine

The Domaine Artefact 2018 Carignan has aromas of caramel, smoke, blackberry, blueberry, black cherry, bruléed sugar, lavender, lilac, white pepper, purple flower, and maple glaze.
This wine is medium-bodied, with integrated notes of allspice, dark fruits, hint of pepper and earth on the finish, very complex. It’s a “party in my mouth”.
Destemmed and fermented in macro bins. Racked into new French oak for three months followed by neutral barrels for 16 months.
Carignan works well with cinnamon spiced dishes (like Indian food), berry-based sauces and smoky meats game with cherry glaze or chutneys, teriyaki steak kebabs, Cornish game hen, and squab.

To discover Carignan is to happen upon a vinous jewel. The fine wines now being produced from this grape are usually the single-vineyard top cuvées in a winery’s portfolio. These are often expensive as a result, but they will also offer a new and exciting experience for anyone looking to broaden their wine drinking horizons.
