Re: 1994 Mini Horizontal

This was the line-up when a few of us last tasted a 1994 horizontal.

Re: 10th Sep 2019 - 1966 Horizontal at the B&F

Yippee - I'm in! All the easier ones have gone.... I'll see if I can find something. Could someone with access to The Book please post a list of Tony's options? 88) If Tony could rustle up a Niepoort that would be splendid... :mrgreen: Other options: Calem, Delaforce, Ferriera, Kopke, Mackenzie, Mo...

Are doubles permitted? Think I may only have Warre and Noval available as things stand.
Actually I have realised I have some Croft at Seckfords. Put me down for Croft please.

I think w/c 10 Jun might also work. Depends when you're in Portugal.
Good spot, yes that's also an option. A few of us are in the Douro w/c 13 May.

Draft of the placemats added to first post.

Edit: improved. But still awaiting choices from CMAG and CPR.
Small edit needed - the G63 is saying Graham 60 on the circle. Did you intentionally omit initials on the circles ?

I have no ’65s. Would you be excessively offended by a Fonseca 1966?
Shabby stuff Julian - I think you should bring two to compensate!
Don’t have two. OK, I’ll choose something else: 2×G80; or 2×RP94?
F66 it is, then!

I have been asked to rephrase my earlier post. So here goes: I think you’ve got a cheek considering the time and effort members of this forum took in answering your query. Perhaps on reflection you might reconsider your remarks.
Your original post did bring a chuckle though :lol:

Re: Mystery tasting notes

This was an event I organised for some work colleagues, and you were also a guest 😀

I should probably sort out a review thread, then you can post notes.

1977 Fonseca

40% opacity, rich red. Lively nose, red fruits. Full, rich mouthfeel, gentle heat, cranberries and strawberries. Great balance, smooth, sweet, with a long aftertaste of red fruit. Very nice! More like a ‘70 than a ‘77.

Re: Quinta do Vesuvio Box Vertical, 13th FEB 2019

I can get there for about 16:30. 3pm is quite early if only 8 bottles to be decanted? I can stop by the office and print the placemats if needed, just let me know. I'll bring a few funnels and filter cloth.

Re: Quinta do Vesuvio Box Vertical, MAR 1st 2019 NYC

Excellent. Perhaps the London tasting should hold back our notes and write-up until after this event, then we can compare notes without any bias creeping in.
