What better day to open this one up then on Mother’s Day. This has been in the back of my fridge since last August (I swear, I do clean my fridge 🙄) and I think the wait to open was a million times worth it! Orange, cranberry and the weight and roundness that wasn’t there a year ago. Always a winner but I’m glad I actually held onto a bottle for a bit.

The 2015 Tempier Rosé is drinking marvelously after a few years. The grapes used to make this rosé come from selected parcels where the vines are on average 20-years-old. This wine immediately awakens to aromas of rose water, lemon zest, smoke and ripe guava that are simply sensational. The palate unveils a wonderful concentration and a gorgeous, soft texture. Guava purée and red cherry candy flavors connect with suggestions of blood orange toward the back end. Truly delightful to savor now, this beautiful Rosé will continue to evolve in the cellar over the next decade. Drink 2019-2028- 92

I have never smelled so much lavender in my life......in anything... apart from being there.

Crisp peach, grapefruit pith / balanced, sleek, and full bodied with a notable acidity giving lift and length. Excellent vintage; unforgettable wine, per usual

A surprisingly unspectacular bottle of one of my favorite wines. Nice mouthfeel but short and blunt.
