A very fun evening even without VP on the table!

Not the easiest to read, so summarising, Tom's D60 LBV took first place with 15 points followed by Alex's D62 LBV with 13 points. After that, SW82 LBV with 9, Sandeman 11 LBV with 4, and the W62 LBV grabbed a point.

It was a relaxed evening on a very hot and humid night made bearable by being moved from the private room by the entrance to the air conditioned green room. The ports were pleasant, some were very pleasant. The SW82 LBV proved what a bargain these were and the Sandeman 11LBV is a monumental LBV that has 2-3 decades ahead of it before it reaches its plateau.

A very good evening, with more time than usual to enjoy both the wines and the company.
