Re: Do we need a 1966 Horizontal?

June works for me. Early July and early August don't. Sept OK.

Should we have a Meaningful Vote on whether or not to use placemats on 12th March? :P
We could plan for a Meaningful Vote on the 5th March, but expect to delay the vote until the 12th.

Re: Graham's Blend No. 5 White Port

Very good graphics. I like it. Modern, with the instructions on the bottle. Treat like Sipsmith Summer Cup or Pim's. Chuck in some fruit, mixers and maybe mint for an alternative Summer drink.

Re: Wed 13 Feb 2019 - The 10th Anniverary Vesuvio Case tasting

An excellent evening, great company and great Ports. Thank you very much CMAG for organising and donating. After a somewhat "drier" January than I would have liked, most welcome indeed. Thanks all, and thanks B+F for looking after us.

Perhaps 3 bottles of FG 1996, since they will be 69 years old between them. Although technically the brief is "a" bottle of port, so perhaps not.

Re: Are Vintage Port prices increasing

I wonder how much prices (and indeed supply) are influenced by currency fluctuations.

Re: Quinta do Cachao Vertical DATE TBA 2019

70's (or from that decade, don't mind which) is a great alternative idea. Still up for Quinta do Cachao when it is possible to arrange. The 13th works for me, but the 14th might land me in trouble.

Can I also go on the list please.

Theme. Anything fortified from Victoria Wine? Could be interesting, but perhaps not in a good way.

Re: How to spell "Port"

Good idea, I'll try.

I'm pretty sure, incidentally, that we have more than one resident pedant, but one in particular is most useful in starting new threads and policing us.

Do we get two guesses at the Magnum?
I’m against this precedent. Would we get only half a guess at a half?
Given our skills at guessing I'm not against two goes. Bringing a blind magnum in two bottles is enough to confuse us. More guesses might give more points and more joy (but probably won't).
