My Tesco has stopped selling this, and has removed the shelf tag. I guess that this has been discontinued - perhaps we've bought it all!

Picked up a case of 2007 Romaneira VP for $20/bottle. Couldn't pass it up at that price.

Now we know "who ate all the pies" !

After that not much was left in the SE so I picked up some everyday ports, I had the opposite problem where a mis communication meant I ended up with slightly more than I planned...

6 Taylos LBV 2006
12 Noval LBV 2005
1 Grahams 10YO Tawny
6 Fonseca Guimaraens 2005

And at risk of being taken outside the city and stoned!

4 Bleasdale, The Wise One 10YO Tawny - if you are a WinSoc member there was low stock yesterday

1 bottle Dows Quinta do Bomfim 2001
1 bottle Dows Crusted bottled 2004
Will pick up more when I am paid next week if still on offer, unless a certain Tesco store which presently has "temporarily out of stock" on space reserved for Croft 2004 unfiltered lbv restocks(cleared shelf of 10 bottles about a week ago), although suspect last Tesco store to stock this has finally run out.

Whoo-hoo! I bought 6 bottles of Taylor 1992 today. That's a port which has been on my target list for a long time, doubly so since I got to try it for the first time early this year and was really impressed.

The only drawback was the ridiculous price it has been achieving...until today!

Do tell! Are there any more at a non-ridiculous price?
