Incredibly youthful and complete. One of the greatest barolo I’ve had the pleasure of enjoying. Notes for myself: FDB bottle

Very savory. Slightly stinky and tangy with almost tomato like vegetable notes. This has lovely sweet fruit still and is a great bottle.

Astounding amount of fruit for its age and it was still drinking well 90 minutes post pop. An enduring stud from @David L that was truly impressive. Not impressive in a “damn good for a 50 year old wine” way but just plain damn good. Resolved tannins, minimal bricking, palpable nose of violets, flavors of garrigue, bay leaf and bruised plum covered in damp earth.

Tasted blind. Reddish tawny color, translucent and looks young. Notes of soy sauce, tea, molasses and some roses. Chewy, still has some pucker. Sweet fruit persists. Guessed ~2000 Barolo. Nice showing.

Night 1 of the Fall WNH event in San Antonio. What a killer start to the extended weekend, all courtesy to Shawn and Jennifer for hosting! Tonight was Italian wines.

Bloodied tomato, stinky cherry and raspberries. Color was gorgeous for the age. A nutty note on the finish with an earthy and mulch like note too. Leave it to
@David L to bring a wine like this! Simply incredible for 54yrs young!

1971 vintage. Bonox oxo cubes beef stock reduced celeriac anise slated black olives. Palate is more vibrant, red fruits and some blood plum brightness and red licorice. Finishes w incredible length and red crunchy cranberry fruit. Question any Barbera in blend? **ahem**
