My TNs very belatedly typed. Does anybody have the score sheet, or a picture of it?
IDJ has, and has sent me a picture of, the scores.

D70, decanted 16:00. Dark red, 60% opaque. Palate of dry cherry, big, rounded, tip-top Port. Very long. I added lots of words of praise: lovely, big, soft, fantastic. My, but only my, WOTN.
