Re: An afternoon of rummaging

That is kinda fun, isn't it? I liken my rearranging to defragging a computer hard drive, as I slide over and move up or down to fill random open slots to create one continuous row which I can put newer bottles on.

Krohn's LBV Port

Looking for some feedback on Krohn's LBV Port. It seems very inexpensive so I was wondering if it has any characteristics reminiscent of their Vintage Port. Love the caramel / pecan pie hints their older bottles have. Can anyone offer links to tasting notes?

Thanks!

I’m not a fan of forum signatures: mere repetitive distraction.

Re: What have you got open this weekend?

I'm being cheap on the Port this weekend with a Penfold's Club Tawny, because the other bottle of sweet wine open is a Sauternes: 2001 Chateau Suduiraut.

Re: Your first vintage port(s)

Being primarily a tawny drinker since my early 20's, I got a late start in Vintage Port only 4 or 5 years ago. Luckily, I have a few friends with nice cellars, and I think I started with a 1977 Grahams. Since I often drink their 10 year Tawny, it seemed like a good place to start when offered a choi...

Hi there!

Dumb luck brought me here. The Google was helping me locate some 1966 Krohn's Colheita as I'm down to my last bottle. A listing to this forum was on the 2nd or 3rd page, so I joined. There's no way anyone would consider me an expert by any stretch of the imagination. I do, however, enjoy a wide vari...
