Metal: the minerality in the soil, Water: for the vines, Wood: the vines themselves, Fire: the sun that ripens the grapes, Earth: the soil Elements exists because of Artesa's winemaking team's ability to farm and source grapes from prime viticultural areas of Sonoma County. They have spent years identifying the specific qualities that produce world class wine grapes: site, terrain, vine orientation, and micro-climate. The wine comes from some of the most highly regarded subappellations in Sonoma County like Alexander Valley and Knights Valley. The harmony and balance continue in crafting the wine creating superb flavor.
Dark garnet color. Aromas of dark roasted nuts, clay, olive, mocha, and berry pie crust with a silky, dry-yet fruity medium body and a tobacco, pencil shavings and mineral accented finish. Quite elegant and graceful
A very nice red wine for drinking now with foods from all sorts of ethnicities and styles. Made from a bunch of varieties, including Cabernet, Grenache and Tempranillo, the wine is dry and tannic, with deep flavors of blackberries, black currants, anise and sweet, smoky sandalwood.
A sweetly rich wine, this feels healthy and balanced, its earthy tannins creating a mouthwatering and spicy cabernet that would be ideal with a medium-rare burger. Its price makes it tempting for summer cookouts.
A really nice, classically structured Cabernet that can stand beside bottles costing far more. The blackberry and cherry flavors have a touch of sweet oak. With savory acidity, it's good to go now.
Dark ruby color. Aromas of spiced berries, floral honeycomb, tobacco leaf, and vanilla cream with a silky fruity-yet-dry medium body and a tangy, creamy, kiwi and baked apple accented finish. A stylish, restrained table wine
Finding good Cabernet Sauvignon for less than twenty dollars is no easy task, but Artesa has come up with a bonafide Best Buy here. Nicely composed and very keen on Cabernet fruit, it shows a sweet trim of root-beer-like spice from front to back and is balanced for early drinking. Its integral tannins firm without adding toughness, and, despite the fact that it should grow for a few years, it is accessible now and will serve well in the near term with juicy steaks hot off the grill.
Offers floral red currant aromas and nicely focused flavors of plum, red clay and brown baking spices that build toward modest tannins.
A good, dry, elegant wine, fully ready to drink now with a nice steak. It's a complex Merlot, with layers of black cherries, licorice, cola and spices, as well as a pleasant touch of smoky oak.
