5 STAR WINERY

2015 Artifacts Chardonnay – 95 Points   “This is fast out of the blocks, its highly attractive display of grapefruit and white peach on the bouquet precisely reflected on the crisp, fruity palate.  clever winemaking was rewarded.”

2013 Artifacts Cabernet Sauvignon – 95 Points   “A delicious Bordeaux blend, highly aromatic and flooded with juicy cassis, tannins and oak sufficient to provide shape on the palate.  Cabernet’s answer to (high quality) Beaujolais.”

2013 Artifacts Meritage – 95 Points   “Deep crimson-purple, given the intensely focused and powerful palate, stacked with black and purple fruits.  Incidentally, ‘Meritage’ was coined in the Napa Valley for blends such as this.”

2013 Artifacts Shiraz – 94 Points   “Bright hue, a lively wine, the bouquet fragrant and expressive, re and black fruits run in ballerina shoes across the medium-bodied palate, matched by crisp acidity joining fine tannins on the finish.”
