GC77, aka CPR, decanted 07:00. Dark red, 70% opaque. Nose of spearmint and blackberry. Youthful sweet dark-plum fruited. Lovely.

Two people (Alex and another) said that it was slightly corked, but below my insensitive TCA threshold.

Decanted 12 hours, 50% opacity, dark red. Red candied fruit from the nose. Tannic mouthfeel - a bit gritty. I also thought it very mildly corked - but not enough to stop me drinking it! Guessed to be F77.

Thought the nose on this rather quiet. I was the 'other' who thought it slightly corked. Dry, dusty, but quiet and light. Didn't really strike me terribly.

Appearing in early maturity with a soft red rim; 80% opaque. Corked nose, mild but distinct. Soft and smooth on entry but bitter and with the cork taint showing through. Served blind this was guessed to be Dow 1977. NR.
