50% opacity, deep dark mature red. Cherries on the nose. Great body, syrupy cherries, sweet lip-licking aftertaste and a great length on the aftertaste. I brought this one for adoption so did not guess, but it was my favourite of the evening.

N70 = “MPM (Extra)”, adopted by JDAW on behalf of BV = Boris. dark red, 60% opaque. Initially a bit sour, and bitter mid palate. An hour in the glasses cleaned it up nicely, sweetness rounding it out.
