Re: Thu 21st April - Before the BFT

Alex, thank you for organizing the tasting. The theme could hardly be better, two solid houses and plenty of good friends to warm up for the BFT.

I can adopt a bottle or help paying the expenses, whatever works best.

Hi Phil, that's true about Naked Wines, LBV is out of stock but restocking soon. Another option is http://www.wine-boutique.co.uk/port.

Re: Vegan Port?

Hi Signus, my name is Oscar and my family is a small Port wine producer based in the Douro. Our Late Bottled Vintage, which matches your price point is finned only with bentonite and thus suitable for vegans. It is available in the UK through different retailers, though the easiest is probably naked...

Re: Tue 03 June 2014, Blind 1958s for Oscar Quevedo

Great evening, as it always is when I'm in London with you. Those 1958 Ports that we tasted were in general smooth, sometimes light and almost all reached the pick a couple of decades ago, I would say. However, it was a lovely experience, thank you all for keeping these bottles and allowing friends ...

Re: 1958 Warre

Warre 1958. Light ruby, brick colour. Alcoholic, pharmacy flavours. Maybe because of the quality of the alcohol, it reminds me all the time a hospital. Very simple and light.

Re: 1958 Noval

Noval 1958. Brick colour. On the nose it is a bit close, with the va showing up. Matured, evolved and a bit oxidized, more Colheita than Vintage. Thyme in a bottle of Port.

Fonseca Guimaraes 1958. Dark brick colour. Ripe cherry flavours with a touch of olives, a bit of mould. Thin mouth and not very integrated. Misses a bit of tannin to handle the sweetness.

Delaforce 1958. Light brick colour. Very smooth flavour with the alcohol predominating. On the mouth is ripe, a bit of jam but overall balanced. It's does not have a lot of body but it is a lovely Port. My WOTN.

Thought I could change it this time, but without success again. Almost nothing left in Portugal of 1958. Uncle Tom is kindly allowing me to adopt a Fonseca Guimaraes from him.

Re: Tue 03 June 2014, Oscar Quevedo in London

Are we definitely going blind on this? I'm interested to see how they taste, and differ, and will be more interested in "so the '58 Dow is like this, the '58 Warre is like that..." than in guessing which is which. If we do do it blind, could people still please bring the bottles, as some will be qu...

I like the idea of the 58s too, served blind.

Daniel, not sure if this year I'm able to make it Belfast, my wife is pregnant and we expect the baby in October. I may have to skip Belfast this year. Let me know if you come to Portugal soon.

Interesting thread, Port geeks getting into Port chemicals. My view which is quite similar with yours: - baume is strictly related with density and sugar, as Jeff pointed; there is no correlation between baume and acidity - the acidity that you can find in wine (not the added during fermentation or ...
