I hope to be there at about 17.30 following a Zac handover. I had hoped to be earlier to be able to help set up, but if there are last minute duties I should be there to assist.
Thank you.

My bottle of Passadouro 92 is at the B&F as I will be travelling on Wednesday, I was planning to ask B&F to decant in the morning unless others disagree or would prefer to decant it latter with the others?

Message from Bartholomew Broadbent to members of TPF attending tomorrow's tasting:
Bartholomew Broadbent wrote:I’m looking forward to the Broadbent Port Tasting tomorrow. Tomorrow happens to be the first day that my father’s new book, Wine Tasting goes on sale. I have the opportunity to pick up copies of them tonight. They are 25 pounds each. Would any of you want to buy it? If so, I could bring them to the tasting. You’d need to bring cash or a cheque. Let me know at bbroadbent@broadbent.com I look forward to seeing you. Bartholomew

I should be able to print the placemats, but will also not be super early (I don't think, at the moment).
Alex: please be reminded that you’re printing, partly on A3.

Alex I can print if needed. I should get there by about 4.30. Drop a message here if that’s needed. Cheers.

I'm OK. I remembered to print - and I remembered to over-ride the standard printer setting we have here of 2-sheets per page, double sided.

But we also have a bonus bottle not on the tasting sheet - Irayna is bringing a bottle with her, one which she is quite pleased to have been able to hunt down and share with us. Teasers or spoilers people?

Is it a bottle that went missing from the cellar years ago... I can’t remember what it was but I think a 55 of some sort? Or a NN63 Mr Davy wanted us to enjoy?

Or a jeroboam of the Graham’s 1982 single harvest which should be enough to sate our thirst!

Or perhaps a Tregnum of Sandeman 1955?

No, none of those.
