A very good decision.
There might not be a guest. We might wear our own cufflinks.

My notes suggest that the '75 blossoms after a long decant.

Re: Thu 15 Feb 2018, at the B&F: Mr. Wolfgang Starz

Thank you all for the great evening! Having now become a British citizen I am looking forward to many more tastings. Also our experiment with the extra ordering of the Steaks paid off. I think we should do this again. Despite the Steaks were always good at the B&F this was a step up worth paying for...

Re: 1960 Fonseca

I think to say the F60 needs drinking up is not correct as it is currently in such a nice "plateau" for drinking. Despite I agree taste wise it will not improve from here and it is in comparison to the 63, 66 and 70 a bit lighter in structure and finish in terms of complexity and fragrance of the po...

Re: 1963 Fonseca

The F63 improved throughout the evening which indicates the port should have been opened and decanted much earlier. Aside the quite closed up and therefore restrained mouthfeel the excellent structure, complexity and flavor profile shows through. Ripe Cherry and spice flavors that make the port very...

Re: 1966 Fonseca

The decant time was 4:30 AM after being opened the night before at 9:30PM. On your observation "a touch hollow mid-palate" I could agree with but I consider this rather a strength given it is still a port which is far to young. If I had not opened it so early you would have tasted rough edges you ca...
