Re: POCAS VINTAGE VERTICAL DATE TBD

I really enjoyed the “Portuguese-style” Vintage Ports at the recent Messias vertical, and it would be great to see what a different house has to offer - please can I be added to the list? Thanks.

If there’s space, place may I attend? If there’s no space, please may I be added as a reserve? Thanks.
Should be ok - welcome aboard. Just waiting for Miguel to let me know what Portugal are sending.
Thanks!

I will print the placemats and have them dropped off at the venue, along with my bottle, at around 1330.

Re: NV Broadbent Auction Reserve

A good balance of fruits on the nose (I thought it was quite “plummy”, overall). More fruits on tasting (now more like berries), along with some spice (pepper?). My favourite aspect, though, was the very sustained and enjoyable finish!

Hello, folks

Thanks for adding me to the forum! I’ve been drinking port for a few years now, and I’m keen to advance my knowledge. I therefore attended the port walk at Berry’s last November, and when looking for the event for this year, I came across this: https://www.bbr.com/products-51467-introduction-to-vint...
