Re: Which LBVs are worth cellaring?

AHB, great insight on both this thread and my intro thread which you have posted on. This is exactly the sort of advice a newbie like me needs, one who perhaps would like to start a reasonable collection but can't really afford to start with a dozen bottles of fine vintage. You have all been a great...

Re: Hello to all

Cheers AHB, I'll have a look at Waitrose and see what I can pick up.

Re: Hello to all

I hope to add a couple of mid nineties to early 2000 vintage and grow with them over the coming years. They still appear to be not extortionately priced yet. So here's to t...

Re: Hello to all

Thanks PhilW. Once I put on my reading glasses I could see the bottling date of 2015 in very small print :) Perhaps I should have bought a couple of bottles. Drank one now and kept one for a while to see how it changes. That may well be my next move. I guess I was being a bit tentative as this is my...

Hello to all

[background=]Hello to all. A quick introduction. I've just returned from a great weekend in Lisbon where I had a wonderful evening tasting wines and ports. We tried a lovely 2012 LBV and a 2012 'quinta' vintage. I'm looking to learn a bit more around Port and I'm looking forward to hearing from you ...
