Do you want placemats from me? If yes, email the obvious details.

Edit: done — current draft of the placemats (which are more ornate than usual).

It's very likely that you will be the only person who attends both tastings. I would be very interested to hear your thoughts on how the wines compare from large format compared to regular format so please do write up something which compares the wines which feature in both tastings.

In fact, that might make an interesting article for Fine Wine Magazine...
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.
