Rs91. Dark red, 65% opaque. No nose. Minerality and sweetness, soft plum, with structure. Good size. Liked.

Dark red, 70% opaque. Quite dumb on the nose. Full and rich in the mouth, but well structured. Very nice wine, needing more time. #3 WOTN

Still quite deep colour; not much on the nose, but much more developed in the mouth, with good balance, medium tannin and plenty of fruit still.
Very good - my WOTN.

A really nice spot today. In the red fruit with some rounded development and overall sense of balance and good persistence. Lots of pleasure in this one.

I don't have confidence to vote based on what might happen in years to come so go for pleasure on the night. And for this bottle also surprised me by outperforming its status and allowed this sway my vote. Hence my WOTN.
