2012 Tessellae Carignan

tesselaeI was excited to try a 100% carignan, especially one that cost a mere $12 a came with a lot of positive press.

Alas, it’s pretty boring.

The sweet fruit is pushed to 110%, and it might as well be any grape from anywhere.

It’s fine. I’m not complaining about the wine at the price point, but I’m glad I didn’t buy more than two bottles of this, which is lulling me to sleep with its indistinct fruitiness as I drink it.

85 points.

I like to drink and write about wine. I'm an equal opportunity drinker, but gravitate toward France, the Pacific Northwest and up-and-comers like New York and Virginia.
