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.

Places to drink post lockdown

I thought I'd start a thread with recommendations for drinking/eating venues that are opening post lockdown.

I'll start the bidding with Noble Rot, Lamb Conduit Street.

Re: 2015 Berry Brothers LBV

Alex, when scoring LBVs do you score relative to other LBVs, or do you score all ports together?
