Pray for America

Not much to say. I am ashamed and despondent, and my fellow Americans would benefit from prayers for peace, patience, insight and compassion.

God be merciful.

23/12/20 - Chateau Beaucastel CNDP 2005.

Excessive alcohol — I don’t like spirity Ports

:tpf: Is a special place. The reasons are multitude but the point is that its individual members, with perspectives and preferences as varied as their personalities, have continuously helped me think in new ways about a subject on which I have already invested so much.

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

Thank you George for organizing the tasting and the theme. I enjoy opportunities to taste vintages in the way we did last night. (A) vintage to be drunk sooner rather than later. You crack me up alex. Just when I think I have you totally figured out, you throw me a dead wicked googly. Given that th...

@ Chris Doty...Please let me know if you would like this amending and I will drop them a note.
Thank you - my order is: wild mushrooms on toast, five cheeses (the five of seven offered that are pasturised) and a side of chips. Many thanks again for organizing!

Re: 1980 Smith Woodhouse

Thanks for the note. I've enjoyed these previously but only have a few left and have been saving them, which appears justified based on your experience. 1980 in general is a better vintage than its reputation suggests (for port at least...)

1977 Sandeman

Popped and poured over thanksgiving. No formal note, but after about 20 minutes the nose opened nicely; the alcohol and sweetness well balanced throughout. By no means a monster, this mellow tipple went down smoothly and threw only a spare sediment. Enjoyable as usual, but has me thinking about 3 mo...
