Hey jdaw1,

apologies to you and the rest of the guys joining on monday.

I'm gonna have to DK the croft 77.

I checked the fill and it was shoulder level.

Going to replace it with a Rebello Valente 77 instead.

apologies again.

this looks great,

would be me and the missus joining in.

I won't be able to decant prior to dinner tho
and the wines would be sitting on my desk at work since i won't get any chance to swing home.

How does a 77 Sandeman's sound?

Couldn't resist the pull

Anybody here know the Bishop of Norwich?

looking forward to sharing the port with you all.
