My first TPF visit; I hope for many more. I am grateful for being made welcome by all present: a friendly crowd. We drank some interesting, and some admirable, port. WOTN (restricted to those tasted blind) was AJM's BBR/QH 1977; with AHB's 1968 Noval Colheita second and the 1957 D'Oliveira's Meio Doce third.
