Given a choice then S45, as would be interesting to taste alongside the S42.

Are you available for the new date?

Re: Potential Emergency - Tuesday 25th August

Alas I’m quattordicining. But I have something to drink — is it possible to I join remotely? If placemats will be wanted, I’ll make. Julian Virtually attending is a possibility, but depends upon which table we've got. If I can get the Wine Library (or something similar) then won't be a problem. Wil...

Sorry to mess everyone around, but have just realised that my wife is doing jury service on the 14th, so I now can’t do this or 21st. Currently checking room availability & will update shortly. Cheers Neil Right, how does Monday 28th September sound? Have booked the Lutyens Room. Please re-confirm.

Possibly, dependent on whether I have to be at a client premises outside Leeds the following morning. Should know Monday.
Excellent news - hope you can make it.

If you do go to Leeds do you have to quarantine for 14 days after?

Re: Latest buy

One bottle of Quinta de la Rosa 1988.

Also, first visit to a Sainsbury’s in months and finally managed to pick up a couple of bottles of the Taste the Difference 2000.

Potential Emergency - Tuesday 25th August

I am going to be in and around the St James’ area Tuesday late afternoon / early evening & wondered if anyone might fancy sharing a bottle or two at 67 Pall Mall?

If interested/available let me know.

Re: VE (etc) Day Tasting - Mon 14 Sept

Not, I suspect, an original thought; nor, in the context, should I be quite as surprised by this as I was; but I have been struck, in my unsuccessful hunting, by quite how few VPs there are from the war years, other than 1945 itself. Colheitas and garrafeiras, yes; but not VPs. No VP in 1939 or 194...

Re: VE (etc) Day Tasting - Mon 14 Sept

Would you be able to put me on as reserve - 1945 Ferreira Done. If promoted from reserve (which is reasonably likely) might you have an alternative bottle? We've already got a Ferreira 45, and whilst a comparison would be interesting suspect the general preference would be for greater variety. If n...

Created and printed. Placemats are A3, so plenty of room to add in another bottle if needed.
Now just need to remember to take them to B&F.

I suggest a theme of “Port you’d like to share with other Port lovers to celebrate the end of lockdown while remaining appropriately socially distanced”

Any alternative suggestions?
Perfect.

Still undecided...
