The Domaine Artefact 2017 Rincon del Diablo is a full bodied GSM with aromas of crushed potpourri, dried lavender, purple flowers, and mustard seeds. On the palate, a great deal of red fruit, blueberry, with spicy lavender vanilla and Italian herbs. As the wine opens, nuanced Cocoa and bittersweet chocolate. Tannin structure is elegant and integrated. This wine is complicated and well balanced, with a lingering finish of spices and leather.
All varietals were destemmed except for 30% of the Grenache which was fermented whole cluster. All varietals were fermented separately and racked to 228-liter 1-year French oak barrels and 50 % 1-year French oak 500-liter puncheons. All varietals were aged for 19 months separately and blended in January of 2019.
GSM stands for Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre – three important grapes grown in the Côtes du Rhône region of France. Today, this blend is produced throughout the world and is loved for its complex red fruit flavors and age-worthy potential. Definition provided by Wine Folly
