The Domaine Artefact 2018 Syrah is 100% Syrah of the Alban Clone. It is a full bodied red with aromatics of dark fruits – highlighting blackberries and boysenberry. On the palate, the dark berries give way to a “bacon-spice concoction”. Dried leather makes an appearance, as do dates, dried figs, cinnamon and clove and peppercorn. This mélange closes with a finish of blueberry, blackberry, and peppercorns.
