Re: Warres 1974 LBV port 2 bottles in wooden case

Hi Mayb,

Welcome. Thank you for your post, port for sale is always of interest. Can you tell us a bit more please. Such as where you and the bottles are, and how they have been stored to your knowledge.

Many thanks,

Simon

Re: 2021 Virtual Tasting #1 - Thursday 14th Jan

That looks like a lovely bottle of port Charles. Most disappointing that it is a virtual tasting and we aren’t able to sample it with you. I hope it will be every bit as nice as I have decided in my own mind it should be. Enjoy...

Re: Empty box for a Graham's SH61

Lovely collection. I have enjoyed some of those, but not all. I hope you enjoy drinking them one day and wish you good luck with the hunt for the 1961 box as I too am a sucker for the packaging.

Re: Lockdown Drinking - The Sequel

Musar had a TCA issue with the 1999 vintage. More so with 1/2 bottles than full bottles. The rate for 750’s is far less. I’ve had well over 3 cases of this between 750’s and 375’s. I have been lucky with the ‘99 vintage. A couple with some VA that was noticeable, like Thatcher in the 80s, but no TC...

Re: Lockdown Drinking - The Sequel

Very pleasant bottle of Hugel “Tradition” Riesling 2005 last night. Starting to show some maturity but no rush to drink up yet. Following up on @winesecretary’s Burgundy issues, opened two bottles of Musar 2000 over the weekend. First bottle excellent, second bottle slightly TCA impacted, and this ...

For the LBV tasting this week I will be having a first sample of the Taylor’s 2016 LBV which I hope will give the Graham’s 2015 a run for its money.

Re: Vintage Character Port

I have a bottle of Vintage Character from 1977.
I can also find images of Churchill’s Vintage Character port, which suggests the rule change was after 1982. When I get a chance I will look through some books later to see if I can find the date.
