Re: 1977 Warre

Yes I forgot to bring my port into the office yet again! Luckily one of my clients gave me a Warre 77 which was happily sitting on my desk. It was an excellent bottle source Corney and barrow - hats off to them, i had a bottle a couple of weeks before and the colour was nowhere near as good. That al...

Thanks for arranging this, very enjoyable evening even if i was very late and as sadly too oftern happens I had my starter as everyone else had puds. The Croft was my Port of the evening. TCP is an excellent location and they do look after us very well.

Looking forward to the Feb tasting!

Re: Tasting at Quinta do Passadouro Monday 29th June 2009

I would like to second Derek's comment, Ronald and Jet are wonderful hosts and made our visit fantastic. I have stayed at a few Quinta's that take paying guests and this is honestly my favourite. Having hosts at the property makes this wonderful, they are very welcoming, have a fantastic selection o...

If it helps I just had some Morgan 85 delivered from Octavian which was from the Christies Morgan sale so could bring a bottle to the Vargellas tasting if it helps to get reaquainted!

I would also be very interested in the case of 1980 and a general point am happy to break a case I get - purely on a non commercial basis.

Following on from Ben who started a similar thread on the 2008. Now we are starting to see the declarations of 2006 albeit very limited has anyone yet tried any of the ports/any feedback? The 2006 list of declarations on the top of this index was the basis to start looking at this. I will be in the ...

It will also provide the motivation for getting the Dow 80 purchase delivered and allocated out sorry for the delay here. While in the US met up with ADV and had a...

Douro Wine Tasting/Offline

I realise this is really for Port tastings but I wondered if anyone fancied meeting up for a Douro Wine Offline in London at the usual venue. Proposals I am open to/suggestions welcome. - I can supply a range of 2005 Douro reds mainly "Douro Boys" or 2004. Possibly we could do a compare between the ...

Alex is correct, sadly this is the last bottle of the case left - but what finer group of peope to drink it with! Since purchase it has been stored in a wine celler at an old house, so just had some seasonal temperature variation so should be in good order! Will be delivered to TCP next week.
