Rioja Crianza

90 Best Buy!

Fragrant with violets and black cherry fruit,

this takes time to move beyond its clean

lines toward something more emphatically

earthy.  Air brings a stoniness to the

structure, while this wine seems blacker,

with the assertive precision of a flamenco

dancer’ heel.

93 Outstanding

The least expensive offering is the 2011 Tessellae Old

Vines Cotes du Roussillon, an intriguing blend of 40%

Syrah, 40% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and 5%

Grenache Gris, a rare white grape. It was aged 12

months in concrete tanks prior to being bottled un-

filtered. It boasts an expansive, intense, complex

bouquet of garrigue, strawberries and black cherries

intermixed with a hint of spring flowers, a velvety

texture and a voluptuous mouthfeel. It made me write

in my tasting notes that it was a “$12 Cote Rotie of

the south,” although $12 Cote Roties went out of

existence about 50 years ago. This beautiful, soft,

round, seductive red should drink well for 4-5 years.
