Unfortunately I can't make the date as I'll be out of the country, but hope it will be an interesting tasting and I will hear about it the following week.

Wines arrived today looks like we have a complete set including a 63 - I had to pick up a few but most contributed by Miguel.

Miguel is visiting me the day before so we will decant and bring them up with Dia, Miguel and I on the day.

Hope this works for everyone...

1. Are they all Messias, or are some Messias Cachão?
2. Please confirm the list of Vintages in the first post.

Set for Week commencing 23rd October 2019.

Miguel from Messias and myself have arranged for 23rd October. There is no need to contribute physical bottles as Miguel is providing most of the ports gratis. Where I have had to fill some gaps (I am still struggling with the 63) there will be a nominal cost.


I visited Caves Messias in N D Gaia a few weeks ago. Between Messias and myself, we can construct an almost complete vertical of Quinta do Cachao VP. There is an offer from Messias to help put this together. Let me know your thoughts - If there is interest and I will start to firm up....

(My assumption is that PF members do not hold a lot of these and that most (if not all) of the bottles will come from Messias / myself.

Vintages
1955 (struggling with this one)

Below all available
  1. 1960 (Cachao - Confirmed)
  2. 1963 (Cachao - Confirmed)

Cachao Vintages indicated - Can I suggest that we do not include the non-Cachao Vintages - this will make the tasting more manageable.

One space free on the tasting - it would be nice to have a full house of tasters as Miguel is coming over from Portugal for this.
