T77: lovely mid red. Dry, both on nose and start of palate. To taste dry then strawberries, then dry again. Mid-weight; the dryness ‟overwhelming”. No fruit, but lovely.

DRT, knowing that he had never had T77 before rued the absence of AHB, who said DRT would doubtless tell him that he had. Nay matter: PhilW and I named reminded him of three in the last four months.

Cruel, but true.

Dusty nose - perhaps Warre? "Yum-yum, yum-yum" Delicious sweetness. Dry liquorice in the mid palate with red fruits in the finish, which is very long. Splendid Port. I'm surprised I have never had it before :roll:

Medium colour, slightly light but inviting nose; minimal fruit but delicious flavour, complex and long. Taylor isn't my usual house of preference, so I was impressed by how good this was to me. Pipped by the D77 overall.

Extra bonus to have brought along a good bottle which Derek had never tried before :roll:
