Graham's thing starts at 1900 (I think), so guess we'll be starting sometime between 2000 and 2030.

No. Just no.

Dow declared 1899; Graham declared 1901; approximately everybody else declared 1900. So we can’t start a Graham tasting at 1900. Did you mean Warre? And if you are arranging a Warre vertical starting at 1900, yes please, definitely include me.

As it turns out, I will be testing whether or not the Moderna vaccine affects your tastebuds the day after receiving it.

Looking forward to this... It has been a while since a proper ‘multiglass’ tasting!

If there is still space, might I have an invitation too? I probably won’t be able to stay long.

Apologies for dithering, I wasn’t sure whether to ask if I could come to this after the Graham Tasting or try to go to the Port.Club one since I missed the first.

(PS. How bizarre to be double-booked for virtual Port tastings!)
