I am now decanted and heading for London.
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.

Also decanted, at 0700. A slight worry about the nose, possibly corked. Backup bottle packed, which can be popped and poured if necessary.

A familiar face decanted at 7.30am-initial signs are good.

Thank you all, a most enjoyable return to official port-drinking duties. And very gratifying to have my bottle win WOTN, and unanimously!

This might be only the third time we have had first-place unanimity, following Mz58 on 31 October 2013, and DB78 on 30 April 2014.

A very welcome and enjoyable evening with the F70 cementing its position (in my opinion) as a great current drinking Port with all present giving it maximum points. A nice array of other Ports meant that I'd consumed my quota more quickly than usual and as such I even managed to catch a decent train home. Food and service in the B&F were impeccable and aircon perfect. I either accidentally or deliberately left my sparse tasting notes (plus my pen) at the venue and so I am unable to recall my guesses; however, I do recall that we all garnered about the same number of (low) points.

I photographed your TNs, and have emailed to you. May I post image fragments in the TN threads?

Not a bad round of guesses; I note that the scorer denied Charles his winning point (he should have had two points for guessing G77 correctly, giving him a winning total of 4).

They're more sparse than normal-I'll try and curate them first :D

Perhaps JDAW will overwrite the image and correct this error. I was the scorer and admit my liability.

Done. Re-load of image might be needed.

Warning! Danger! Such a suggestion could lead to someone suggesting modification of the tasting notes after the event, to add what the wines were, our guesses, and to auto-tally the results, and we'll re-enter the whole "should the archived copy of the tasting notes be what we used on the night, or can it be some hopefully-not-affected-version-modified-by-jdaw" debate!

Too late, and it was only a small addendum rather than a deletion.
