Domaine Lafage Tessellae Vieilles Vignes Côtes Catalanes Carignan 2013

A custom cuvee... the 2013 Tessellae Vieilles Vignes is 100% Carignan and comes from 70-year-old vines... It is an off-the-charts value that offers up thrilling notes of black raspberry, chocolate, graphite, tar and licorice to go with a voluptuous, decadent, yet seamless and gorgeously pure feel on the palate. Seriously, this wine is smoking good and should thrill for 4-5 years, if not longer. Just pretend you paid more for it. eRobertParker.com

Extracted, shows deep varietal character and minerality, rather than fat.

A bit ripe for Carignan for me though still a crowd pleaser style

Young, but opens up quickly. Great qpr. Good white pepper. Inlaws are over so I had to open something cheap that I can drink. This was perfect

First time I've had this grape and really like it. It's light and dry but really crisp. I like that it held up to spicy foods. I'm not sure it's my favorite but very drinkable.

Not bad for the price. Didn't find it too complex, thin aroma and a short finish

Lots of tangy ripe berries and rhubarb on the nose. Straightforward in the mouth. Dark, ripe fruit and quite a bit of coarse-ish tannin. Short finish.

Was angular and a bit sharp and austere day 1 even though tart blackberry and underipe blueberries came through. Day 2 and its gained some weight on the palate with deeper blackberry fruit, licorice, pepper, some jam and bay leaf. Great QPR for the complexity.

Easy to drink, tastes of black currant. Like a lighter version of a chateauneuf du pape. Amazing pairing with fish with pesto and cheese and shallots
