Anyone interested in flying to Florida to help me complete this TN?

Sorry to have been a tease, chaps. Just got off the phone with Brad, who sadly confirmed that they have sold the last bottle of this wine (which apparently the owner had bought at a Christie's auction in London 50+ years ago).

sigh...

Does anyone mind if I move this thread to the Port Conversations forum? If we leave this thread in the Tasting Notes forum it will show up in the tasting notes index and then disappoint anyone who refers to it in years to come.
