Julian, I have no objection to incorporating the two Barros bottles if we can't find any more old and odd vintage ports.

Same decanting time? Surely not.

The Colheitas should not need any real amount of decanting. Pop-n-pour at the restaurant, or decanting at home/hotel right before going to the restaurant should be fine IMHO.

Sorry I have to pass on Nov 7. By the time I can get there after teaching my class (10PM ish) it would make more sense for me to come to the next one that is going on Sat Nov 22.

Cheers!

The reservations will be under Jeff for 8 at 7:00pm.

I'll be there around 6:30-6:45.

See you all tonight.

The hooper 44 is also a colheita bottled in 88.

And the label of the Garcia 1896 says ‟Choice Tawny Wine”.

Placemats printed yesterday, so won’t change them.
