Domaine Lafage 
2012 Carignan Tessellae
Côtes Catalanes, France
$15 per bottle | $162 per case

A mix of old world purity and new world bombast, this arresting old vines Carignan is the Wine of the Week you lovers of big reds have been eagerly awaiting. What feels like a whole patch of blackberries whomps you in the mouth before the classic southern French pepper, licorice, and black stony earth bring it all in for a powerful finish that just goes on and on. Rich and full of velvety tannins, it’s impossible to ignore and harder to forget. A recent rave review has this sold out all over the country, so this is likely your only chance to grab a case to drink as it gets even better over the next five or six years.  - Ryan Stotz, Store Manager, H&F Bottle Shop
