Tue 9th October at Portal Restaurant

Post by AHB » 16:32 Sun 14 Oct 2012

A small group gathered at Portal restaurant last week for a meal and a handful of ports. The ports drunk were Brunheda 40 year old tawny, Portal 40 year old tawny, Dow 1994, Fonseca 1966, Fonseca 1963, Taylor 1948 and Warre 1922 (I will post links in due course).

Wine of the night voting awarded the Fonseca 1963 9 points, Fonseca 1966 8 points, Warre 1922 7 points and Taylor 1948 6 points. Neither 40 year old tawny received a point and the Dow 1994 hadn't been opened at the time of voting. All the ports were served blind, and guesses were as follows:

Warre 1922 - guessed to be Fonseca Guimaraens 1942, Dow 1948, Warre 1924, Unspecified Shipper 1912
Taylor 1948 - guessed to be Warre 1945, Warre 1948, Cockburn 1904, Graham 1935
Fonseca 1963 - guessed to be Graham 1963, Dow 1966, Dow 1970
Fonseca 1966 - guessed to be Dow 1977, Dow 1970, Dow 1977
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
