1994 Quinta do Vesuvio

Very dark ruby red wine which provided a wonderfully rich coating of the glass. I was surprised that the first aroma I picked up was dark chocolate, followed by figs, spices (thinking of those used around Christmas) and sweet dark red fruit.

Re: 2020 - A 1970 horizontal

I don’t have any 1970 but I can add a potential venue for this event (Oriental Club) in case the other proposed venues are not available/don’t work for the number of attendees, etc. Of course please let me know, via PM, if more info is needed.

Re: Tom’s Birthday 1960 Horizontal, Tue 02 June 2020

If possible, please could I be listed as an adopter (because I merely have a dubious looking Cr60 at present). It is anticipated—and hoped—that this situation will change between now and the event, so I’ll update the thread accordingly.

Re: POCAS VINTAGE VERTICAL DATE TBD

I really enjoyed the “Portuguese-style” Vintage Ports at the recent Messias vertical, and it would be great to see what a different house has to offer - please can I be added to the list? Thanks.
