I don’t have bottles meeting specification (oldest are Warre 2004, 2007, 2008). So please waitlist me, and if it doesn’t fill then I’ll adopt.

Sadly, despite loving the theme, I can't attend so will have to pass.
Top Ports in 2022: Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port. I cried with joy.

2023: Fonseca 1966. There are not many better Ports, except a good bottle of Fonseca 1927. Wow!

There doesn't appear to be any mad rush for this one, so I've put you in with adoption of my Delaforce 1995.

Not a date I can make and don’t think I have much to offer other than Warre from 2004 onwards anyway.

As bottles seem to be a bit rarer than I'd anticipated, have pushed the requirement forward to pre-2010.

I now also have a magnum of Taylor's 1982 LBV, a random extra in an unlikely auction win.

Ordinarily I would be very keen on this. Regrettably the date clashes with ‘New parents evening’ at our youngest child’s new school. Non attendance is not an option. And I have a 1971 magnum of LBV that would have been ideal!

Memory failure: I do have Warre ʟʙᴠs from 1981, 1982, 1984, 1986. Any or all are at the service of the team.

Edit: ’84 reserved for HTWH. But I still have ’81, ’82, ’86.

I was on a rummage for something else and unearthed a bottle of Porto Cruz 2002 with a driven cork, Late Bottled Vintage on label but no bottling year discernible so I'm in! I was keeping it for a wedding anniversary but needs must... :wink:

You're in.

My Delaforce is available to adopt, but one of JDAW's Warres might make more sense? I'll leave you to communicate & decide.
