On Thursday 19th December 2013 a subset of the obvious suspects gathered at The Bell in Wendens Ambo to taste old, peculiar and unknown bottles.

Bottled by Berry Brothers. Warm red centre, mature but still with plenty of richness. Soft and gentle nose, with slightly sour cherry. Soft on the palate, restrained at first with dusty cherries later. Lovely sweet, lingering fruit finish. Gorgeous texture, gently spicy. Wonderful; beautifully elegant. Served blind, this was guessed to be a Warre 1960. 91/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908

Lovely cherry-laden nose, mid-sweet and very flavourful with a long red liquorice finish. Still full of life and tannin. Exceptional - 92
