Please can you add me to the reserves? I am interested but have no '77s so would need to work out a plan to acquire some or adopt, and the associated costs.

I'm sure that adoption will be an option here ....

Of course but I'm aware that there will be plenty of owners of the '77 vintage who would want to be part of this tasting!

I have few ’77s; CEM has many, and also I have drunk very well from from CEM’s cellar. So the fair thing is to move me to first reserve, thus promoting CEM into the fourteenth seat.

Translation: ‘some’ = approximately everything, in every size.

That's very kind of you Julian and not expected in the slightest. I'm over for 5 weeks from the 9th June so thank you.

This is a Port tasting. We are not defiant revolutionaries; we are traditionalist scientists testing hypotheses.

I am all in favour of defiant port tastings. It smacks of cool rad street cred.

If I had left my device’s autocorrect, which substituted ‘defunct’, this would have read somewhat darker.

For exactly the same reason, I am defiantly against this modern nonsense.
