Not including Unknown Shipper Ports, I have identified 102 candidates for me to bring to this tasting. This comprises 5 colheitas, 1 crusted, 13 LBV, 1 ruby, 3 tawny with indication of age, 1 white and 78 vintage or single quinta vintage Ports.

Next step is to eliminate anything in sizes smaller than a full bottle.

The combination of remorseless analysis and case after case of lovely port is a delightful one...

Eliminating options which are in sub-sized containers reduces the number to 85. Now to eliminate any bottles held in bond...

As previously discussed, Alex possibly now has too much spare time on his hands.

Wonder how his Quinta purchasing plans are progressing?

No plans to purchase a quinta, I can't yet figure out how to generate the income I need to be able to buy adequate supplies of Port once I've used up all my capital buying one.

So instead, work continues on the list of options available.

Once I look at the wines I have which are not in bond or in case quantity offsite storage, the list reduces to only 23 choices.

That would still suggest you are sorted for annual iterations of this tasting until you are 80...

Unless others have the same wines as I have. Many of my list are unusual but by no means rare - several Taylor, Graham, Dow, Sandeman and Ferreira LBVs are on the list.

Since there seems to be plenty of space, I'd like to bring a guest, ACMS, to this tasting please. He is right-handed.

Very happy for that to happen, and have added him to the list.
