Re: 2000 Dow

Disappointing. I bought it retail some 4 or 5 years ago from N.D. John, and it has been kept in our cellar since then. I had expected better. :(

Re: Y2K Tasting Tuesday 17th March

Certainly I could bring along another time, and will if it seems the best choice but I have another few D2000 so am happy for one to be sacrificed for an enjoyable horizontal. Dow probably should be present. Whatever works best for you all.

Someone is welcome to pick up Dow 2000 from me in Chiswick if that is easiest.

Re: Y2K Tasting Tuesday 17th March

Very sorry, I am going to have to drop out. Gone down with some form of lurgy, and prefer not to spread it around. I'm having a rubbish winter with far too little Port consumption. :(

Re: Y2K Tasting Tuesday 17th March

I will delve into the darkest corners of our cellar tomorrow and see whether what I think is here actually is. Should be a few different Ports according to the excel file...

Re: NV Wine Society Crusted (bottled 2006)

Phew. Whilst Mrs L is aware we have wine in storage, I haven't exactly admitted how much. Always best to keep a few cards hidden up my sleeve. :)

Re: 1970 Horizontal - Tier 3 ports

I have voted evening. Not entirely sure I would give the tiers 1 and 2 Ports a fair chance if I had already tasted tier 3 in the morning, but prepared to give it my best shot should that prove consensus. :)

Re: NV Wine Society Crusted (bottled 2006)

Thanks for the note. Excellent. This makes me very happy. I bought another 6, and 6 of the 2007, which are in storage at The Wine Society. I've not thought about them for some time, but perhaps I now should. One day, when I get room at home (buying > drinking = chronic shortage of space and Mrs L se...
