A splendid evening, now slightly hazy in the memory, allegedly ‘guaranteeing’ Derek another year of immortality.
Are you sure? No 1965 on the list makes me doubt that this tasting helped with my immortality :?

So... followup auction in the US?
Probably not. Nor the UK, or any other market. A quick totting up of the lots suggests everything is being sold in this one auction. If a US retailer buys some you might be lucky, but the price could be very high by the time it gets to you.

Re: Sandeman signature vintage character port

Vintage Character was outlawed by the IVDP in 2002. One of the pictures of the back label says that the Port was shipped to Seagram. This means it must have been produced between 1979 and 2000. From the style of label, barcoding, etc I would think it is from the latter part of that period so is prob...

Re: 10th Sep 2019 - 1966 Horizontal at the B&F

In the unlikely event you need a reserve to fill in, can you put me down please? 66 is my birth year but they haven't lasted long in my household...excepting the rest of a case of Fonseca that's always been spectacular. I would however buy something to fill gaps, or offer to double up on what you'd...

Re: Port and quantum computation

Excellent!

Not only did you prove that you can multi-task you also provided an opportunity to prove that the peer review process is effective 88)

More importantly, how was the W2004LBV?

I'm not the seller either but would caution against jumping in on these old Noval colheitas without knowing the bottling date. Quite a few that I have tried with a decade or so in bottle have been cloudy and lacking the freshness you get from a recent bottling. Not something to buy blind in my opini...
