1977 horizontal in New York: version 2

One possibility is that all my port could travel with me. Another is that some of it forms the core of some tastings, here in the new world under its new President(-to-be). Possible themes include:
  • 1977 Horizontal:
    • Warre;
    • Taylor;
    • Fonseca;
    • Quinta do Cachão;
    • Smith Woodhouse;
    • Niepoort;
    • Ferreira.
    !
Are any folks around here willing to help with the drinking? ! What dates work, excluding the last weekend of January and the first ten days of February?
This would not be the first :tpf: 1977 horizontal: Are the residents of New York able to take another 1977? There would be some repeat bottles:
  • Repeats:
    • Niepoort;
    • Taylor;
    • Fonseca;
    • Quinta do Cachão;
  • Non-repeats:
    • Warre;
    • Smith Woodhouse;
    • Ferreira.
Preferred dates? Extra 1977s?

Oh i believe I could, as i missed the first one!
But the end of 08/beginning of 09 is starting to look devilishly packed with NY tastings...

You say that as if it is a problem... :lol:

I would enjoy a 1977 horizontal and will be in NYC from Feb 25st through March 1st. (New York City, between Feb 25 and Mar 1, 2009) Friday, Feb 27th would be an ideal date for a tasting for me!

I have several 1977s that I could choose from for this tasting. I have the Dow, Fonseca, Royal Oporto, Taylor, and Warre VPs as well as a Porto Rocha Colheita.

Since JDAW already has the Fonseca,Taylor, and Warre that leaves me with the Dow and Royal Oporto as my options unless the rest of the attendees would like to try the Rocha Colheita. Any of them would be fine with me.

I can also bring a half a bottle of the 1977 Royal Oporto Colheita, but it didn't make for good drinking. Maybe it'll be better in 3months!

It’s a vintage port tasting, so I think save that for a colheita evening.

Hi. Is there a date set for this tasting yet? I am free beginning the 2nd week of January. I could either purchase or adopt a bottle in this case.

I don't think a decision on the date has been made yet. I'm hoping for Friday, February 27th as that's the weekend I'm in NYC and available to participate.

Let's do that.

Target date for this tasting: Friday, February 27
EDIT -- We're changing this date.

Could the tasting on this date not be the ’77 horizontal? Re-enfatherment could happen on this day, and most of the ’77s are mine.

Should we swap it with the Grahams?

I care not what the theme of the tasting is on Friday, February 27th. I care only that a tasting occur on that date! :lol:

Graham's... 1977... "stuff Julian doesn't like"... no wait, that last one would leave us without Port...

If we drink it, won't that make it significantly more difficult for him to put it aside? :lol:

Should we start a new thread to discuss the theme for this specific date? I think this thread is more suitably used to find a date for this specific theme.

Go for it. As i mentioned in the four months in ny, even a dinner with a few bottles of VP would be fun.

I'll never make a port tasting within two weeks of another port tasting so I pass on whatever is decided for Feb 27.

The 1977 horizontal has been moved to a date, to be determined, in May 2009.

So have I. And the point of this series of tastings is to drink my US-located port.

I believe for a few of these tastings we'll be doing lots of adopting to help unladen our port brethren.
