I have gotten a bid for the whole thing at about 80% of retail.
Four-fifths of retail is a good bid, unlikely to be bettered here. I advise accepting, quickly.

Would you be interested in re-scheduling it to Wednesday, May 1st?
Does that work?

Hello. To help a possible purchaser (not me) please say where in the world are you and the bottle.

One possible theme could be the Messias Quinta do Cachão vertical, which needs a new date. (If that, its list of attendees will have precedence over these.)

My TNs very belatedly typed. Does anybody have the score sheet, or a picture of it?
IDJ has, and has sent me a picture of, the scores.

We liked the 1963 and 1966.

Re: 1970 Dow

D70, decanted 16:00. Dark red, 60% opaque. Palate of dry cherry, big, rounded, tip-top Port. Very long. I added lots of words of praise: lovely, big, soft, fantastic. My, but only my, WOTN.

Re: Thursday 23 May 2019

First post updated.

Theme? It could be merged with a theme already wanted — horizontal, vertical, other. Or not.
