Color is very intriguing, probably the lightest pale yellow I've ever seen.
Nose has dried citrus, dried fruits and a touch of alcohol.
Palate is clean and floral; white flowers, honey, touch of beeswax maybe, light oak influence.
70% Roussanne & 30% Marsanne
I think this is mostly closed for business, we'll revisit tomorrow and the rest in like a 5-8 years.
24hr Update: Slight improvement, honey with minor lemon skin notes. — 4 days ago
Dry cider, lightly sweet red apple flavor. Not my favorite Artifact, middle of the road. Using it to keep me cool in the kitchen this morning while making jalapeno BBQ sauce. We're headed to a 3-Day bluegrass festival this afternoon, so sauce needed to be made now, no time this weekend, and tomatoes don't wait. — 6 days ago
Pairing this along side home-made pizza tonight, yum. Tannic cherry notes going into the decanter, notes forthcoming... $6.90 at my Costco.
Color is black cherry, only translucent at the edges.
Nose has earthy cherry, trending a little towards cherry syrup, interesting.
Palate has fresh cherry, light toasty wood, simple yet vivid but the finish is heady, maybe more air time is needed... Faint mocha notes make an appearance.
Definitely a solid value for the price. — 7 days ago
Two hours decant, still wanting more time in bottle and decanter.
Nose of fresh cranberry, dried strawberry and wet Earth.
Palate is full on dried, yet moist cranberry, orange zest, dried cherry. Medium tannins. This wine is still so young, needing more time (2-3Y?) to open and reveal itself.
24hr Update: Beautiful dried cherry/strawberry aspects, this bottle has years to go still. — 4 days ago
