Re: Tue 12 May 2020, Horizontal of 1992s, B&F

The book has a chapter Vintage Reviews , in which I wrote, p601, 1991s are junior to the 1992s. Insufficiently tasted to say more. In 2019 George organised an excellent tasting of 1991s , after which any opinion was less uninformed. Then: I intend to arrange a 1992 horizontal. We need a 1992 horizon...

Re: 1991 Horizontal, Mon 09 Dec 2019, at The B&F

BTW to jdaw1, the WOTN scores for myself and NA appear to have been transposed. Sorry. It’s not easy for the prosopagnosic. As others have said, praise to George for organising. I did not have a clear mental map of this vintage, and now I do. The ’91s are reasonable drinking, but not a vintage of t...

I will do, just awaiting confirmation (or otherwise) of whether Christopher can take the final spot.
I’ve asked; he can’t.

Re: Informal pre-Christmas tasting - 17th Dec

I will do so as soon as I have confirmation of who will be taking the final space. I have zero knowledge of how placemats will work, having only attended the 2017 VP tasting, so would one of our more experienced guests please weigh in with a preferred option? I’ll ensure functionally good — fret no...

SW91. Red-pink, 20% opaque. Nose revolting. Taste less revolting — but this is not praise.

NN91. Red-pink 40%. Red cherry, soft and oleaginous, good length, lots of heat. This is good Port, texture very fine but not a giant, and not the best here.

TV91. Dark dark red, 90% opaque. Dark plum, closed, dry. Might end up as excellent, might not, but needs another decade in the cellar before which can be known.
