On Monday 24th September 2012, several members of TPF met at TBH for a dual mini-vertical of Warre's and Fonseca ports of the same years.

Mid red core, good rim; 70% opaque. A touch of heat on the nose, full of spicy tobacco. A very slight touch of VA, but rather light. Sweet entry, soft and gentle; flavours grow nicely on the palate with only gentle tannins. Hot aftertaste, soft red jelly baby finish before a bracing black licorice finish. 91/100. Decanted 9 hours
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!

W70, Anduze decanting, opened 07:00, decanted 10:00. Dark red, 50% opaque. Nose of strawberry, lightly. Palate also strawberry, but slightly lighter than perfect — oh the joy of such fussiness. But soft strawberry to the very and delicious end. Rounded, gentle, big, lovely.
