The placemats have been updated, mostly but not wholly in accordance with instructions.

Please verify the Dalva G. W. year.

And I will be bringing a non-trade guest (DEA), and am changing my bottle to a magnum of Dow 1970.
Excellent - is this in addition to the magnum of G70 you mention you are bringing in the first post?

Re: Second wind for 1963s? Tuesday 10 April 2018

I plan to drop Warre and Graham off tomorrow at B&F. Unfortunately I can't offer to help much but can be there by 17.30 if that helps with setting up. If needed I will ask B&F to decant post lunch.

Re: Tuesday 15th May 2018, for the Royal Wedding

Mrs W. has become unlikely. We have a space; and as there has been no word of a guest, perhaps two. We have a quorum, and spare. Is anybody yet willing to reveal? Charles: you recently said that you might bring a magnum of Graham 1970: please do confirm that is so. Others please do likewise. I conf...

OK food order is complete I believe. Could someone do a quick check?
You are missing black pudding for Julian and Ian. Also Ian 'No egg' looks crossed out (I think you wanted to underline) thus may cause confusion.

Otherwise all good. Looking forward to Wednesday

Re: Pointless Statistics

I am very late this year, but I have finally updated my stats. Thus I can see that as of 1st Jan 18 my port 'cellar' held the following: Taylor 13% (15%) last year Dow 12% (8%) Fonseca 11% (14%) Graham 9% (11%) Warre 9% (8%) If port is ready to be drunk at 21 years of age then 63% is 'ready' and the...

Re: Vintage with an '8' theme.

5th June is good for me.

For the theme I agree it should blind bottles ending with an 8 in the vintage with an exception made for any port from the 19th century.
