S77: decanted 17:45. Red, 40% opaque. Great unctuous texture. Big heat in the mid-palate, lovely. Soft fruit, pale cherries throughout, and also strawberries. Mid-weight, perhaps on the light side of that.
This bottle had about one hour of decant, at which time it showed beautifully. It did not improve during the evening: indeed, post-Fonseca, RAYC claimed that it had lessened. S77 should be decanted late.
