Re: A 1970 horizontal, Flight 5, Thurs 8 October 2020

Hello everyone. Probably self-evident, but our plans for the 1970 Mega Horizontal are on hold pending some more certainty about how we could conduct such an event in the current COVID times. I'll reactivate this thread in 2021 at a point when we have better news!

Re: Monday 21st September?

I think I can make it. What’s the deal - bring a bottle and pay corkage?

Invite on way. Does anyone have a clue who sent the invite for 6pm? It is a forward of the invite for our previous virtual tasting, with the date changed.

Folks, I'm likely to be quite late joining so I'll make sure the Zoom gets opened and I'll join as soon as I can.

Re: Monday 17 August - Hawksmoor Air Street?

Slight problem - all the Hawksmoors that are open in London are fully booked on Mondays in August. It seems lots of wine lovers had the same idea as me but were quicker off the mark. I'm on the waiting list but may need to organise an alternative venue at short notice. The B&F reopens on 5 August!

1977 Sandeman

One of my three bottle share of a bundle purchased together with nac . 50% opacity, mature red with a pinkish tinge.nose of dusty cherries and mild cinnamon. In the mouth, nice balance, big cherry fruit with balanced sweetness, very gentle heat mid palate, dryness in the finish. Chewy. Lovely port.
