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.

Good, very good. A bit young, but on the way to kickass.

Pretty closed. Mostly licorice. Not that unexpected considering vintage and producer

A wonderful wine now but I can hardly wait for a decade, which is when it will be truly fabulous!

Still quite deep and youthful. Quite aromatic , floral, complex , menthol and that tarry note. Quite big and tannic still, perfect balance and poise. Lovely floral tinged black fruits , violets , menthol also . Very long finish , a lovely wine , still young.
