Proposed planning for the evening:

Start at 6PM with some drinks and some simple but tasty dinner. Start of tasting around 7.30-8PM.
Joost has enough glasses to supply everyone with 2 glasses, which means we can taste the port in pairs. That should give us some fun comparing vintages that are likely to be somehow alike.

If anyone needs directions to Joost's house please send him a PM.

By what names should people appear on the placemats?

Thanks for making placcemats Julian. Actually, I don't know the full names of all the participants, so probably best use the handles I wrote above.

First draft of the placemats. Comments please.

Questions:
  • Will you want decanter labels?
  • Place names (does everybody know everybody)?
  • Glasses could be squeezed onto two sheets if space is tight: is it?

Very, very late, but is it still possible to attend?
I would provide the Guimaraens 1984.

I will not be able to change the placemats after Friday 2nd July, a week ahead of the tasting. Hence it might be better if comments, and particularly requested changes, could be received sooner rather than later.

The tasting-note sheets have column titles:
  • Times (meaning decanting and drinking times);
  • Eye;
  • Nose;
  • Mouth;
  • Score.
Please translate into Dutch.

Google translator says that:

Time
Appearance
Smell
Taste
Points

Translates to...

Tijd
Verschijning
Geur
Smaak
Punten

These could be used in an emergency if JDAW has to depart before a Dutch speaker confirms the precise translations.

Hi Herman,

Of course that's possible! The Guimaraens 1984 is a lovely addition to the list and it will be great to see you again.

Hi Julian, I am on holiday now and have limited access to internet, but I will send Joost an email and ask him to have a look at the placemats. Derek's translations are spot on! Only possible change: instead of 'verschijning' you could also use 'kleur' (colour).

Hi Julian,

The placemets tasting forms look great.

Some small comments:
- HermanG attends with a FG84
- No translation to Dutch necessary, please keep it in English!
- Can you reserve 2 places for 'Mystery Ports'

Furthermore I think everything is great!!!

Santé,
Joost

Decanter labels can be useful so yes please. I don't think seAting arrangements will be necessary.

Ronald,

would you happen to have a space for me and a friend of mine. I might be able to make it, but need to know if a participation is still possible.

Axel: for the placemats, what is the name of your +1? And will your presence imply more port if so, what?

RonnieRoots: your most recent list omitted Herman’s FG84.

Yes I noticed that but somehow my iPod didn't allow me to view the bottom half of the quote. Could you edit and add? Thanks!
