Re: 1991 Graham

I bought a case of this more than a decade ago. It sounds like I drunk six of them by mistake.

Re: A market for fakes?

Your have an authentic G77 bottle (the "Grahams 1977" branding that is part of the bottle gives it away!) with an authentic-looking embossed lead capsule and a re-printed label that was applied later. All else above is useless speculation.

Enjoy your bottle of Graham's 1977 :wink:

Which houses would you recommend for the ‘85 vintage?
I have found Fonseca, Graham, Taylor and Warre to be very reliable from 1985. There is too much variability in the other houses I have tried to persuade me to spend money on them.

Re: The Standard Food Order

Please, could I change my standard food order. Instead of chips/fries, could I have creamy mash. The chips aren't gluten free anymore, and oddly I see they aren't vegan or even vegetarian (which doesn't matter to me, simply an observation). Maybe they stick the chicken schnitzel in the frier? Hope ...

The standard food order has been updated to reflect recent requested changes. I have also removed all special order steaks and replaced with the standard menu alternative so that the standard template is suitable for short-notice tastings. Special orders can be added providing the organiser arrange...

Re: The Five Word Novel

The story so far... Having decanted the older port, Baron Forrester decided that he should fill his pockets with Cockburn 1847 branded corks. He, much to his mother’s dismay, had not cleaned his bedroom of empty bottles and pipes before going to see his wine cellar and its skeletons. But what he fo...
