Mg77: red-pink, 25% opaque. Nose acidic; and then mistake I tasted it. The acid was far too string.

Later the acid softened, and it became drinkable. But by others.

Not quite right - quite harsh acidity, but drinkable (just) by the end of the evening - simple with brown sugar *(82)

Slightly cloudy; 85% opaque. Burnt marzipan on the nose. Hollow entry with some baked fruit but an off-putting bitterness in the mid-palate. Lots of patience eventually allows some fruit to show through but this is a little dried out on the end-palate. My guess is that this is a slightly spoiled bottle. 84/100. 4.5 hour decant.

Another massive discrepancy.

Other discrepancies in S77, F77, Ni77, Cá77, and discussion later moved to Quantifying opacity in TNs.
