So long as the tasting is not on the 14th, I should be available.

Not sure which vintage(s) I have on hand, but I’ll check and let you know.
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!

Yes I think the 14th would be a bad move for almost everybody .....

Yes please Martin. I’ll check what I have. 12th to the 16th is half term, so would rule me out if then.

Your on the reserve list - clearly we need a bigger room and more port !!

Half term and the 14th are pretty much out of the plan ....

Cheers

I should be able to fill a gap or two from the earlier vintages from the bottles I have at home.

Gent's we have a date .... Thursday 15th February .... (sory if this does not work for people as it clashes with half term)

Can you all check your diaries and confirm your still up for joining in ?

Cheers
