Wrong starter; but probably irrelevant if I can't make it.
In case you can make it — I hope so — please tell me the correct starter.

I’m democratically declaring it to be “Port fit for a Queen”.
Which, in my case, will be Warre 1966.

Others: please reveal.

Food order updated.

Everybody: It’s your job to check. if you don’t check, and you don’t like, it’s your fault not mine.

We didn't notice that this tasting was rescheduled to May 1, after the cancellation of the March date. Unfortunately we cannot make it on May 1. We hope this will not cause any problems and that we can cancel our participation. We hope you have a very nice tasting.

Re: Is anyone interested in....

Sorry to be the bearer of unwelcome news, but 1975 was not a good year; Cockburn’s was worse than average for 1975; and the bottle hasn’t been well stored.

This might be worth more than the postage of sending it, but not by much.

Have you friends with whom to drink it? Or to whom to give it?

Re: Wed 1st May 2019, Broadbent Port, at the B&F

I won’t be able to be there properly early. Is anybody will to volunteer to take charge of early decanting?

And of printing of the placemats?

Thank you.

What compensation would you feel was in order to correct this issue.
None.

Those 11 bottles are far less worth than what I paid.
They are worth a mite less, or perhaps just the same.


I’d tell BI that they should have told you, and then drop it.

Re: cellared Vintage port for sale

Hello. I’m unlikely to be your buyer. Nonetheless:
• Is each ‘case’ a dozen, or a modern-style half-dozen?
• Where are you? Or, more importantly, where is the Port?

Re: Wed 1st May 2019, Broadbent Port, at the B&F

I can bring a GC83. Thank you. Yes please. More than happy to bring something along, how about a Passadouro 92 or 00 or if preferred a Ni 00? The Passadouro 1992 please. I would like to still come along, but until I move to Dorset cash flow is all tied up, so I would need to not have the dinner and...

Re: 2017 Vintage Ports

There would be advantages in imposing a particular rule on attendees. Attendees must post tasting notes within a week of the tasting. those not willing to commit to doing that may not attend.
