We have never attempted a vertical of Warre Cavadinha.† Surely we should.‡

Cavadinha is a rare large-shipper not-first-name brand. Entry might need to be restricted to those with bottles.




† We have verticalled full-declaration Warre: on 06 Oct 2021; on 24 Sep 2012 versus Fonseca; and, spoilt by dirty decanters, on 02 Oct 2009.
‡ Multiple second-brand/SQVPs are missing from our record, I seeing only Malvedos, Guimaraens, and a planned Terra Feita.

I’m interested, but don’t currently have any bottles - I can try to get one nearer the time though.

Am also up for the Vargellas tasting, as will be Alex M. if he is available. Probably can't do this Cavadinha tasting.

I only have WC2001
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.
