Re: Quinta do Cachao Vertical Weds 13 FEB 2019

I will have to postpone this to a later date as we will not have the wines in time - the suggestion is near the BFT.

I still have the room booked if we want to do something else (and a little less logistically challenging).

Re: Vintage rankings

A really interesting summary - I like the logic you have applied and the forced constraint of a limited number in the top category.

Re: Krohn Mini Vertical - End March????

Would be interested, subject to date; I have only the '70. I would prefer to have RV on a separate occasion (and will be extremely keen to join for that, and have been trying to pick up occasional RV in preparation for this). We could convert this to RV - I just want to put a place-holder down for ...

Krohn Mini Vertical - End March????

We have a lack of organised tastings in the New Year!!!

Would anyone be interested in a Krohn vertical? I have a small run of 5 vintages 61-70 not sure what others have in their cellar.
If limited could combine with a Rv run.

Thoughts and offers please.

We have a lot of vintages to cover - any thoughts on how best we should approach this (e.g 2 flights) ?

Re: Wed 12 September — 2016

For me this is a solid vintage that is worthy of a declaration. Compared to the '11 vintage at this stage the wines are of lighter body and colour. Whilst laking the immediate 'wow' factor of the 11's these are more nuanced and perhaps more reflective of the winemakers skill. Yields were small and t...

Re: 2016 VP's - Wed 12 September

Most of the port should be at B&F today. Dia has kindly coordinated the menu choices for us. I am still waiting for the Sandeman and Offley - these are coming from IBD so might be tight. Also have Cachao and Messias arriving on Monday. Not a bad line up considering it was all last minute. With a lit...

Re: 2016 VP's - Wed 12 September

I suggest organising it as a self-pour walk around tasting. Put all the bottles on some tables at one end of the Red Room and people just help themselves to what they want, sitting down and taking notes as they wish. Agreed. I’ll prepare sticky labels rather than the usual circles (when there’s a l...

Re: 2016 VP's - Wed 12 September

Just had a delivery from Fells with the SFE estate wines - rather kindly included Capella and GST. For an last-minute ad-hoc arrangement this has been remarkably well supported by the shippers/importers. Hopefully Sogevinous cask samples are other way which would make about 20 bottles. Given the qua...
