Great showing. First glass has some wild earthy scents, with a structure that's still gritty and chewy. Then it smooths out and gets almost silky by the time we get to drinking it - and starts throwing off those enticing tapenade scents that are just textbook for this wine.
1989 Barolo (NoMad Restaurant, NYC): [Double-decanted mid-afternoon. Tasted about 10pm.] Exotically perfumed nose. Fragrant and exotic in the mouth. Elegant. Hard to describe. Not quite like most Barolos, but it has a classic sweetness and elegant fruit. It's the perfume that is so different.
From 3L. Not yet fully mature, showing primary and secondary. Great balance and complexity; soaring aromatics, red fruits, savory notes, roses, tar. Well integrated acidity provides lift. Fine tannins.
