I also found a 97 Tesco in the cellar which I remember someone was looking for a tasting?

I was watching that sale - that lot went about four bids above my top limit..
because i had only one port from my birth year, i didn't really have a limit on them, after missing out on 2 lots at the end of last year, i have stopped putting a limit on them, as they don't come up very offen.

There's a 12bt case of the quite rare Noval 94 in the current BidForWine auction. Looks to be in excellent condition.

Any interest in a group purchase?
i would be keen on a few.
