Domaine Artefact

2018 Petite Sirah

The Domaine Artefact 2018 Petite Sirah has aromas of rich dark berry fruit compote, black licorice, Asian five spice (clove, cinnamon, nutmeg), black tea, black pepper, chalk and leather.

This wine is unctuous, full-bodied, with flavors of dark berry compote, olive tapenade, edible flowers, mocha, mineral finish, black earth, everlasting finish, and integrated tannins. This wine is “age worthy”.
Destemmed and fermented in macro bins. Racked into new French oak for three months followed by neutral barrels for 16 months.

Our Petite Sirah pairs well with ribs, carne asada, grilled and barbequed meats, roasted or sautéed mushrooms, and grilled eggplant.  It also pairs with game, like bison chili and venison.

Petite Sirah was first found growing in France in the mid-1800’s. It is loved for its extraordinary deep color and full-bodied flavors of blueberry, chocolate, plums, and black pepper. Despite its popularity, Petite Sirah is an exceptionally rare grape with less than 10,000 planted acres worldwide, growing mainly in California.
