    December 31, 2021 - NYE: Ringing in 2022 (Rocknroller's (Kevin & Vicki's Place)): Dark red color. PNP, drank a glass over 3 hours. What a marvelous nose, pretty red and black fruits, floral, tar and garrigue with immense lift and purity. The palate mimics the nose and it's purity, the fruit and balance shines brightly here; ripe black and red currants, cherry, cherry skin, tar, exotic spices, quite spicy with a white pepper finish and sleek tannins. Loved it, in a great spot and no rush at all!

    December 31, 2021 - New Years Eve 2021 (Kevin and Vicki's house): Pop and pour. Pink flowers, black to red fruit, anise, spice, mushroom, damp earth. I didn't know what to expect here and this was a fantastic well-aged CDP.

    June 13, 2021 - Color/App: clear, moderately deep ruby core -> diffuse, fully mature garnet rim. Took about 1-1.5 hours to reach apogee after popping the cork. Classic, lovely and savoury bouquet of Herbs de Provence, forest floor, leather, a bit of that CDP spice and a touch of band-aid. Palate was all singed cherries, that wonderful sage/thyme/herbessence, garrigue and just a notion of meat (Syrah coming through?). While delicious and definitely on the plateau of enjoyment, I'm not sure this is going to go too much longer as I would say the finish is no longer than about medium-length. But seriously, what more can you want from a CDP in a really good vintage? I think at 20+ years this totally rocks my Rhone !

    May 22, 2021 - Still an awesome bottle. Intense herbals and florals, clean and piercing palate, long and deep. Absolutely charming.

    May 20, 2021 - Clear light red. Red berries, blood, and singed herbs in this gorgeous almost youthful nose. Dry balanced raspberry and cassis flavours and a beautifully balanced finish.

    Loved this.
