1977 Dow

So here goes my first tasting note and my first bottle of Dow 77, having read of many corked bottles I opened nervously, but all looked good, a deep red colour maybe 50% and it smelled lovely. I started drinking straight away (in case it went down hill) and returned regularly for a top up, it was th...

Re: When will the '94s be ready?

The G 94 at Berry's port walk was very different from other bottles I have had in the last year, much thinner and more evolved, thus I am not sure this is a good example other than to remind me the difference of storage conditions!

Re: Port for sale by retailer

Sainsbury's has the Graham Malvedos 01 on offer at £20 (instead of usual £27), which after their 25% off on 6 bottles or more for wine/champagne/fortified (till Friday) works out at just £15.00 per bottle :)

Newbie!

Hello all, I am Charles and live in Suffolk, I explain/blame my taste for port on my Grandfather and Farther who introduced port to me and shared many a bottle from 1970 with me over the years. I have enjoyed exploring more widely over the last year or so especially 1977's as I was born in that year...
