1987 Graham Malvedos

Absolute bargain. Buy it by the bucket-load. I opened this at 9:30 in the morning, double-decanting it back into its own half-bottle. Cork was thin and hard but came out cleanly. Masses of dark fruits early on and no massive alcohol kick made this very easy to drink. Chocolate notes later meant that this came out as one of the most enjoyable on the night, pipped by the Harveys.

I was lucky enough to be there and I endorse those Opinions. My only complaint and criticism, was it was only a half bottle! :)
But to be fair, I wasn't experienced enough to know different, and the other two more experienced guys were taken by surprise at its quality, compared to a few Blockbusters that didn't necessarily perform on the night.
