Of course, now what on earth are you doing to open if England win their next match?!

Hi I will need to start organising this - last week in September is looking promising. Any comments before I finalise?
I'd struggle if it was Thursday 27th September...

Re: 1992 Dow Bomfim

65% opacity, end of note. Drinkable but has suffered somehow. Consistent with a baked bottle.

Re: 1994 Tesco

80% opacity, dull red. Jammy nose. Young, some tannin, jammy but also spices and pepper. A bit stewed. The stewedness pushed me to guess Tesco '94!
