[From magnum] Dessicated red fruit and tons of mushroom, earth, soil / utterly superb!

More earth and mushroom. Higher toned fruits, border-line tart. Tastes SUPER young. I hope I get to taste this wine again in 10 years

Evolved stuff with classic aromas of aged leather, tea, dried cherries and cedar; hints of VA too. Full on entry with fading fruit on the finish which is fresh, but not necessarily complex. Added 2 points just for the possibility to drink an iconic 35 year old Barolo.

Impeccable. Earthy, lilac, hints of cedar, light chocolate. Deep. Rich and constantly changing - lengthy flavor. Tar, spice. Mid-weight on palate. Defined acid and tannin relationship. Great time to open this.

KWN #6. Smoke-filled, with a minty edge. A lot of secondary flavors here like earth and gravel. Little to no fruit. Love it. A long, powerful finish.
