Domaine Artefact, San Diego County (California) Syrah Estate 2015 ($47): Winemaker Mark Robinson impresses with this Highland Valley estate wine, that’s showing black and blue fruit, pepper and menthol. It comes off as a cool climate Syrah in style, thanks to popping acidity, and it has pleasant weight with no heaviness. It’s rather firm at present, but well structured and looking at a nice future. Decant well in the near term, or give it five years rest for openers.
