At least an hour for the old white. 2-3 is better.JacobH wrote:That's interesting. Thanks. I'd assumed it was much too hot for decent whites. Would you give them both a decant? (And if so, how long?).
This thread is making me wish we could travel to the Lebannon again!
Reds a few hours as well.
The “more accessible” one sounds quite tempting, especially since when I periodically stock up on the Hochar from Majestic it usually comes in at £20-25 a bottle. We were given the 1989 box as a present: I’m waiting for the lockdown to end so we can have a nice dinner party to drink them, even thou...

Iirc, the law of a third only applies to what is actually in barrel. Regardless of type. Anything bottled but held back for later release does not count toward that.

The no decanting argument strikes me as bogus, at least in today's market. The supermarkets buy LBV soon after bottling, get it on the shelves, sold and out to be drunk in a very short time scale - typically a few months. Very little is still around a couple of years later when the first sediment a...

A big thank you. Wonderful to see old faces and new ones as well. Though there was many of us and obviously not as “normal” as an In person gathering, it meant a lot to step away from world events and meet/interact will fellow Port lovers. So thank you all!!!

Decanted 9 hours. At 23 years old the color has finally lighted a bit, but is still quite dark. Lots of black stone fruit on the nose masks its age. The palate is more on the drier side, typical for Dow's, but is offset by the youthful lush black plums, black tea leaves, menthol, a touch of youthful...

My little bit of home grown software for choosing my next bottle of VP (some 1800 lines of Excel VBA) has decided my bottle for tonight should be a T92 Checking my records I see I last opened one of these at home on April 23 2008 - my note read: Way too young and immature, come back in 2020.. ..so ...
for reference 7/5/2010 - I wrote: 95 Points I tasted this at varying times over the past three days. This started out dark purple and by day 3 was solid opaque. Initially lots of tobacco leaf, boysenberry, and some chocolate on the nose that gave way to a large amount of seductive lavender and black...
