Re: NYC 1985 retro

I just had a 77 SW last month....Thought is showed quite handsomely. I was wondering what transpired....perhaps late January, early February.

12/17 does not work for me---but you already knew that. :cry: post another date or post another thread for another offline If you are going to do 12/17 and another tasting I would assume you'd rather go into late January/February for the 2nd....so January 23, 30 or 6th (Super Bowl is the 7th if tha...

Re: NYC 1985 retro

G-Man and Sushi North & I had discussed this long ago. The issue for me will be December--just too busy a time of year. January much better.

I have a Ferreira, Souza, Grahams & Fonseca.

Re: How to record personal tasting notes

Excel spreadsheet. I have tasting sheets which I immediately transcribe to the database--even if just a score and couple of quick notes. I like it, its searchable and I can keep track of my inventory and what I've drunk easily.

Re: Buy 1997?

I think they need some time to develop. Not in a great place at the horizontal, but I think many will become if not great, at least good. Gould and Smith Woodhouse showed quite well - perhaps the big beasts were slumbering? Methinks 1997 may be like 1980 & 1983....under the radar with a few stellar...

Re: Selling an unopened case of 1994 Vintage Dow's Port!!

Please tell us where you are located.

Would suggest opening the case to ascertain bottle conditions (fill levels, signs of seepage, etc)

Your storage is not the best, but not the worst either. Please see section on selling port on this website.

Re: Sighted, Blind: advantages, disadvantages

One reflection on the format of the event. Judging 12 blind ports across 3 vintages and 4 shippers was not easy. Had it been 15 with the addition of another shipper, I would have been well and truly lost. I also wrote a grand total of zero tasting notes, partly because I was more focussed on workin...

Re: 1991 Warre

I just one a month ago and thought much more of it than you....but it did fade fast. Not a great port, but lovely all the same. My notes... Showing signs of faded purple into brick red, slightly opaque. Strong, yet dry nose of flowers and strawberry--one of the most odoriferous ports I've had. Very ...
