Magnus was scheduled to attend a conference in London and organised to bring some bottles out of storage in the interest of doing a "health check" on them.

75% opacity, very dark red. Nose a bit closed, plums and strawberries. Full, tannic, loads of dark fruit, chocolate in the finish. A typical F85 - very enjoyable yet plenty of promise.
