Re: TapaTalk issues with TPF

Hi Andy,

Sorry for the slowness of reply, I missed this completely. I have upgraded Tapatalk and re-registered TPF with them but am having a bit of difficulty over getting it verified. I have a support call in and will hopefully have it fixed soon,

Re: 1980 Chateau Palmer

I like Palmer, especially the classic pencil-lead flavours associated with all Margaux wines. It's something I find particularly attractive along with the perfumed bouquet.

Andresen 2004. We also had a Krohn 1997 and a Warre 1995 one of which was donated by AlexK. To my regret, I am afraid I cannot remember which he brought (nor who donated the second bottle).
Both of them, hence answering the other query.

NV Taylor Select Reserve

Rank I bought this from Morrison's today in the vain hope that at £6.49 I may have sought out a bargain. Matched up against a similarly priced Cockburn's, with an equally terrible name and the Dow junk Ruby, I assumed it must be the best of a bad bunch of nasty rubies. Having had 'Renown' before, I ...
