It was a splendid evening on Monday night, thanks to everyone who attended and brought some super bottles. I was pleased that my contribution caused the general response I was hoping for of "Are Butler Nephew ports all like this one?" The three Fonseca ports were all on splendid form and the Dow 1997 just reinforced my view that the 1997s are an early maturing vintage and are drinking nicely now (although no need to be in a hurry).
Daniel is clearly in a grumpy mood this morning, presumably because he couldn't make it on Monday, but should console himself with the thought that he has a small consortium member's share of some Fonseca 1970 which cost not much more than a case of Offley 1972.
We must do this again sometime soon.
