Quevedo Quinta Vale D’Agodinho 2008, 600cl and 300cl

Post by jdaw1 »

The author of [url=http://www.jdawiseman.com/papers/port_and_wine/quevedo_2008.html]The back label of Quevedo Quinta Vale D’Agodinho 2008 Vintage Port in large format[/url] ([url=http://twitter.com/jdaw1/status/29652516305]tweet[/url]) wrote: Almost all wine is sold absolute: the purchaser may do as the purchaser pleases. This is not so for Quinta Vale D’Agodinho 2008 Vintage Port in 600cl Imperials and in 300cl double magnums. For these the owner must invite Oscar Quevedo to the opening, giving reasonable notice, and allow him to taste the Port. If the bottle should have a new owner, whether through sale or inheritance or otherwise, the same condition binds the new owner.

If Oscar Quevedo dies and is survived by living descendants, this ‘right to be invited’ passes to his legal heirs. If he should die without living descendants, this right passes to Julian Wiseman, the author of this contract.

Oscar has sent:
  • Five back labels of the 300cl double-magnums;
  • Five back labels of the 600cl Imperials;
  • Five front labels of similar size to the back labels of the 600cl Imperials.
Other than filing them somewhere, what should I do with these?

Cool!

The front label looks like it might make a good tattoo for the author...

Mount them and frame them in a montage with a letter from Oscar and some photos of the vinyards around Sao Joao de Pesquera?
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.

I like the idea of a tattoo on my (out of form) right arm!
