This is in a good spot - still some fruityness but also rounded with some slight tannins at the back. Will drink nicely over the next 3-5yrs.

This has great potential. Needs 3-5 years I think to soften up and integrate further. Then it will provide supreme drinking pleasure for +10years

This is starting to come together. Plenty of life in this though. Will still improve I think over next years and keep easily for 10.

Hmm. A bit hot on alcohol.
Needs to burn some fat. Would wait 1-2yrs and see. Otherwise needs decanting.

This is really pleasant.
Smooth and rounded. Lacking a bit of depth and complexity to be really excellent. Dont think it will get it but for sure this is still super nice now.

Buy it and drink if of you can. Think it has at least 5 years left at peak level.

This is really nice. But it needs time I think. Opened up after 2hrs so give it 3-4 years and try again. Big potential.
