We pour a full bottle and exchange half bottles blind without any announcement: Sometimes this is scary, because for two times we have exchanged the same produccer (mine was Beychevelle 83, his 98, mine was Carruades 99, his La...

"official" Vintage Port map (IVDP)

This will lead to some fantastic discussions.... Porttoportwine.jpg My little two cents: * What is the definition of a classic year? * I am missing 2015. * 1989 and 1978 - get out of here. I have never drank anything fantastic from these years. * Back to back years 91/92, 82/83? * I never heard that...

Its a Stone Terrace day

It can be easy and rewarding to organise "Full verticals". As there are only 4 years of Stone Terraces so far, it will be fantastic to see them side by side today and next week on location in the Douro: ST Labels.jpg I never had a vertical before, where I rated all Ports with at least 19/20...
