Re: 12th June 2018, Bar Douro, Bring a Bottle to Share

The monkey guessed by text, late in the evening: F66 got no points over five wines, equalling my zero over one.

Re: New to Port

Hello and welcome.

More Portuguese people are needed here. We Brits tend to own the Ports available in the UK — no surprise. Whereas you have (mostly) Portuguese names. Please do post tasting notes.

PS: as this is an introduction thread, I’m moving it to that forum.

2017s on Tue 21st May 2019 at the B&F

We don’t know how the 2017 vintage will be. Perhaps it will be useful collection of single-quinta declarations. Perhaps it will join the illustrious list of all-time greats: 1851, 1878, 1896, 1912, 1927, 1970, 2011, and then 2017 (YMMV). We don’t know. But we should test. People : who is available f...

Re: 1960 Royal Oporto Carvallas

Label said RO58; cork said Carvallas 1960. Which is it? • The taste was much more like ’60 than ’58. • When bottling a ’60 there could have been old ’58 labels lying around; when bottling a ’58 there would not have been ’60 corks. Hence ROC60. ROC60 . Dark red, 60% opaque. Maraschino cherry, lovely ...

Re: 1958 Martinez

Mz58. dark dark red, 75% opaque, like a F77. Off flavours, like a slightly-light W80. Is this the taste of baga? Mid-weight, sweetness, also light plum, and very long. Actually very good.
