Re: 12th June 2018, Bar Douro, Bring a Bottle to Share

Phil - it was Tesco. I thought the abbreviation was Te. Guessed because the port was quite jammy, stewed.

Bear in mind we won’t have space at Bar Douro for tasting mats. Best we’ll be able to use is stickies — but we may not even be able to get 4 glasses each and we’ll have to negotiate corkage on the night!
I'll try and grab some sticky things.

Planets are aligning...I may be able to make it. Will check tonight and confirm.
If you are able to, could you call Bar Douro and ask if we can increase the booking from 3 to 4 people please? I won’t get the chance to call them much before I arrive.
Will do.

Are jeans allowed with a jacket and tie? I’m fairly certain what the answer will be but thought I’d ask anyway!

Glass hire gets a yes from me. Transporting own glasses has a decent probability of breaking one or more, at much greater cost than 13.20!

Re: Warm-up for the BFT: Something nice from the 60s

And please could somebody check the placemats . The thirteen bottles look correct to me. I couldn’t quite tell if Axel’s post here was suggesting that a bottle was being brought on behalf of the industry guest, in which case there is a bottle missing. And will the guest take the blank placemat?

75% opacity, dark red. Nose a bit closed. Jammy red fruit, strawberry jam! Full, tannic, lovely port. Maybe lacking a lit on acidity.
