I have, while stocking up on something else, spotted at the same source and acquired a bottle of Churchill Agua Alta 1992; which is now additionally proffered for this tasting.

In the unlikely event that I make it off the reserve list, the only 1992 I have is Quinta Nova de Nossa Senhora do Carmo.

Yes please!
I am also now unable to make this, so a reserve can be elevated.

I am just touching base with you in regards to your provisional Port Forum booking on for the 12th of May.

Can I just confirm whether this is going ahead and whether you will be pre ordering?

Yes yes, the 1992 horizontal on Tue 12 May is very much keenly anticipated.

We always pre-order if there are more than a few of us. But it feels rather early, perhaps even very early, to be pre-ordering 104 days in advance. When do you want us to pre-order?
Kate wrote:Thank you for confirming the 12th of May. I’ve just returned to the reservations role and I seem to have a lot of provisional Port Forum bookings, so I’m trying to establish which ones are going ahead.

There is of course no need to pre order now. 2 weeks in advance will suffice.

You’ve been made first reserve, swapping places with IDJ.

As remarked elsewhere, this is likely to be cancelled. By which I mean postponed — I still want it to happen, even if less soon than intended.

As a result of a fortuitously-priced recent auction, I have now also acquired Fonseca.
