Excellent review, as always, Gary. I recently spent about 5 days helping an aged aunt and uncle on their farm as they come to terms with their infirmities (they are reluctantly giving up cattle ranching) and had only WT 101 to sip. I took no notes but enjoyed every drap I sipped. But I think I like the heaviness (to use you phrase) of the Tribute and KS more than you do.
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rage at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light. - Dylan Thomas
