Observations:

1- I see they've blocked the cellar door. To keep certain imbibed people out?

2- No more worrying about hitting your head on the low hanging portion of the ceiling. Very nice.

We had already done a cellar tour.

Fine company and fine port! As Julian observed on the evening, all wines scored points with a range between 4½ and 8 points.

Great evening with all Ports (bar the flawed G77) readily drained. As has been observed, the number of Ports garnering points was reflective of the quality on offer. Food not quite up to the quality of last time but this a very good venue. Not quite sure about the Ck70 I brought being described as murine, however... :D :
