Re: 2007 Quinta do Noval (formally "E") Vintage Port

Apologies for the delay in posting my scribblings but after my holiday I had quite a tough week. Of the 5 samples I liked E most; very dark, black fruits, very balanced, quite long in the finish. Haveing tried it a day later it was even better, really good composition. The only wine which really exh...

Re: TPF Christmas 2009 Offline

If possible I would like to attend as well. Since I have not been at the Bell before, may I ask how difficult it is to get there and back from/to London?

regards

Re: Warres Vertical October 2nd

I would not say wrath; with reference to the elaborate discussion in the preparations for the Vargellathon I was rather confused and feared initially my English was not good enough to understand the deeper meaning behind the thread. After Alex and you kindly agreed that you also felt it went a bit b...

Re: May Offline in London

Alex, I confirm my attendance as well. It looks there is already quite some interest in alternative a.) I would be interested in d.) (am curious to try the 1980, after i could not make it to the 1980 horicontal at your house) but am also happy with a.). There is only a problem, except the bt of Cock...

Re: Wood-Matured Port, Dockmaster's House, London,20 or 27 April

Hi there, apologies for my late reply. I would be interested as well. But I am not in favour of the date either. The main reason is football (want to go to Barcelona - Chelsea in the Nou Camp on the 28th of April). If absolutely necessary I could do the 20th of April. Since I drank my Niepoort 1976 ...

Re: June 11th - A Small 1991 Horizontal

Hi there,

would be very happy to attend to this tasting. 1991 Ports I could contribute are Vargellas, Dow, Grahams, Morgan, Niepoort, Warre and Smith Woodhouse. Warre and Smith Woodhouse are currently not easily accessible for me and also would like to avoid opening cases.

regards

Re: London Quinta De Vargellas tasting - 24th March

Hi there, after having had to overcome quite some significant "Muppettism" of the courier company I can report finally the standard bts of 1991 Vargellas arrived. So the worst case half bt of Vargellas 1991 from Axel in case the standard bts would not arrive in time can go back to the shelf :D cu ne...

Re: London Quinta De Vargellas tasting - 24th March

Will do, it is highly likely that I will open the bt 24h in advance if the 91 Vargallas is shipped in time if not told otherwise. Can we do the Decanting at the Crusting pipe? I will ask Axel what he recomend with regards to his 1996. Have you got any experience with the 1991/1996?

Re: London Quinta De Vargellas tasting - 24th March

Hi, Ho hope the 91 Vargallas will be shipped in time. Looks all good at the moment. With regards to decanting times of Vargallas I think we should open the bts at least 1 day in advance. Decanting is another thing but at least the bt should be opened before hand. With regards to decanting time I wou...

Re: London Quinta De Vargellas tasting - 24th March

Lads,

with a little bit of luck I will turn up with a standard bt of Quinta de Vargallas 1991 on the 24th of March in TCP. If the worst case scenario happens I will bring Axels half bt of 1991.

Hope this is OK.

All the best

Re: London Quinta De Vargellas tasting - 24th March (prob.)

Hi there, after follwoing this thread and also the date set for the tasting I would like to check with you if there is still a free place for me to join in. In addition I must confess that I only own some 1995 and 2005 Vargallas which you already included at least partly in your line up. So please l...

Re: 1970 Graham’s

Hi Derek, apologies in the delay of my response, but I disagree with you. The smell of the 1970 Grahams bt (Corney&Barrow bt and from my cellar) at the tasting was similar to nail varnish remover. At the tasting I was still a bit unsure since I did not have a reference taste/bt to hand and also was ...

introduction thread

Hi there, to some extend I am not really sure what to say. So I hope with the following text to fullfill the criteria set for a proper introduction. As probably most members of this forum I do love Port. However this was not always the case. I learned how amazing they can be very late. Before I was ...
