I will be working in London that day so could, perhaps, stay on in the evening. Life is complicated slightly by the fact that Mike has already scheduled an emergency for Monday 27th.

Perhaps if there is not much availability from others, this might be an opportunity for us to have that dinner I keep suggesting to you?
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

Could your emergency be sated on the 27th? I sadly need to decline the 21st.

I'll be in France on the 27th. 21st would be the only date possible for me.

This is looking better.

There is now a chance I can make the 21st. I'll try and confirm in a week or two.

Derek and I appear to be incapable of appearing at the same tasting unless either the total ages of the wines present exceeds 1000 years or else we are not in the UK; mysterious forces seem to prevent this. Fortunately for Derek in this case I can't make the 21st July, so hopefully he will not receive a sudden summons to a remote Scottish town for the week.

That would be rather good. I don't think I've seen you since that amazing Croft vertical we did in Boston in 2007.

Link to a Croft vertical in Boston, February 2008 (which reminds me that thread is still awaiting pictures).

Well, my project has been moved to Sept, so I will be unable to attend :crying: I am anxious to have a portathon as I don't know anyone who fancies port like us in Boston...

When in September? Particularly convenient would be Wednesday 9th September (if appropriate reply in that thread rather than this).
