To mark the occasion of Mr Wolfgang Starz having become British, some of his new compatriots gathered at The Boot & Flogger to drink Port Fit for a New Subject of Her Majesty.

Seeing the tasting note up already, I thought you'd been unable to restrain yourself and had opened the bottle already, perhaps bringing an alternative on Thursday :)

Cr70, decanted 08:00. Red-pink, 35% opaque. Nose gentle: sweetness, mint, alcohol. In other company, or alone, this would have been good Port. But the slight stewedness, and the heat, meant that more attention was given to its sisters.
