Current version of the placemats has been updated.
Please could somebody check the placemats: are people and bottles both correct?

(Obviously the A4 glasses page tucks slightly under the A3, so saving a little table space.)
Looks correct to me.

Tony - would you like a pair of hands to help set up and pour? If so, what time do you expect to arrive?
If it means that I can relax whilst you do the work - absolutely!

There will be 3-4 of us travelling up so we can manage.

Grand plan is to decant all of the bottles (at my place) around noon and we will bring them all up with us.

One space free on the tasting - it would be nice to have a full house of tasters as Miguel is coming over from Portugal for this.

Cachao Vintages indicated - Can I suggest that we do not include the non-Cachao Vintages - this will make the tasting more manageable.

Re: Quinta do Cachao Vertical on Wed 23rd October 2019

Set for Week commencing 23rd October 2019. Miguel from Messias and myself have arranged for 23rd October. There is no need to contribute physical bottles as Miguel is providing most of the ports gratis. Where I have had to fill some gaps (I am still struggling with the 63) there will be a nominal c...

Re: Quinta do Cachao Vertical on Wed 23rd October 2019

Wines arrived today looks like we have a complete set including a 63 - I had to pick up a few but most contributed by Miguel.

Miguel is visiting me the day before so we will decant and bring them up with Dia, Miguel and I on the day.

Hope this works for everyone...

Re: Quinta do Cachao Vertical DATE TBA 2019

OK I Have an offer of a date second half of October I am proposing 15 or 16 or (more likely) 22nd or 23rd (a week before the 69). I need to get back to confirm quickly. Miguel will send over most of the port to me - I don't think there will be a cost for their ports. Where I have had to purchase a f...

I have a recent release of g66 from SFE which is one of 300 bottles released In 2016 - I realize it might double up but I need a special occasion to open it.

Re: 2017 Warre

(tasted sighted) A star performer! Deep purple, expressive nose of blackcurrant, some vanilla and spice. Beautifully integrated even at this stage with a full body and silky smooth tannins. Wow! 98/100
