    September 18, 2022 - Opened and paired wild wild king salmon directly off the seared cedar plank. Improving and rounding out into a lovely wine with firm acidity and an extended, textured finish. Still a little unresolved on the palate, but much better than last tasting. I expect this will probably be best next year, and then for a few years after. Drink 20222-2026. Technical score: 92. Enjoyment score: 92.

    September 5, 2022 - still has a sophistication to it, though the acidity seems a bit more noticeable as the fruit backs off--just fine with me.

    August 21, 2022 - Onion skin, with hints of pink, in appearance, with that characteristic ,so inviting aromas of a fresh sea breeze, ripe white peach, pureed strawberries, cantaloupe melon, hints of warm blackcurrants, and slightly saline herbs (fennel?). In the mouth , creamy with medium acidity, and flavours of peach and orange. Tempier bitterness is still there as it leads you into a finish of dry saline chalkiness , and then finally lingering tangerine , and orange liqueur. Mature , rich , opulent, and reassuringly satisfying - one of the world's great roses year in year out. Drink this one up this year and next.
