Emergency tasting for this friday (the first night I'm free) to see if Gould Campbell 1980 is any good. We'll be in NYC, and I am tempted to try for Didier's La Sirene again (no corkage).

All the bottles arrived with good fill (mid/high neck) but one which is just at the bottom. There's another with a scary looking capsule and a much lower tax stamp number than the rest. I'm debating whether to open one of those two, or to pick one of the better looking bottles so that we are assured a good representation of the wine.

Julian -- I appreciate the offer of placemats, but with only one port presently planned, it may not be necessary.

All: Who can attend? Any comments on venue?

Half way to permission, but only half way. If I can make it I’ll bring a pre-war oddity.

I have permission to attend a ‘tasting’, but not a ‘drinking’.

I’m in.

PS: I know what you’re thinking. Please, shhh!

Lol, the placemats are great. I'm going to save the pdf on a thumbdrive and leave it in their crate :) Am calling to make reserves at La Sirene, with the understanding that they won't be able to give us more than a typical dinner slot. If this is OK, let's pick a time -- say, 7pm? As we have one primary bottle between the three of us, we should be fine. The GC won't arrive 100% full, i'll be checking it during the day and putting a bottle aside to check saturday night.

btw, there are 2-3 cases of this stuff left at the source, so if we like it, we can make plans :)

Josh, please count me in. Eric D. called and mentioned he would be coming as well. Are we bringing stuff in or can I adopt/chip in?

Please add 2 more to the reservation.

Let us know. I'll check in later.
Cheers!

JohninNYC will be adopting a bottle from me. Looking at what I happened to have on hand I decided on a Niepoort Qta do Passadouro 1995 for John's contribution.

What a merry band are we!

I just noticed I have a bit of an oddity: a Messias 1980 Colheita. Would you guys rather try the Niepoort Passadouro 95 or the Messias 80 Colheita? The Messias might fit with the 'curiousities' theme that seems to be developing here.
