Excellent. Perhaps the London tasting should hold back our notes and write-up until after this event, then we can compare notes without any bias creeping in.

Heh, holding back notes leads to people just not posting any =)

Good effort to get the same tasting on the west side of the pond.

Have a great tasting! I will aim to post the results from the London tasting over the weekend. What I will say as it will not influence you is that the 2006 Magnum was rather good!

A very fun night with a few surprises--I've not had many Vesuvios before so welcomed getting to know the house. The 1994, 1992 and 1995 were the stars of the Vertical with the 1989 the clear loser (pine resin flavors in Port not good). I'll let SushiNorth give the official tally. One thing I noted was the wine color, while other brands tend towards magenta or crimson rims, these Vesuvios definitely were rose colored, with the rims various shades of pale red rose.

After we had three 375s, a 1975 Kopke Colheita (marvelous), a 1994 Smith Woodhouse VP (Showed well for a pop and poor) and a Portal 10 Year White Tawny (Easy drinker).

Big Thanks to G-Man and Jay for all the hard work to make this happen...and especially appreciate the chance to try duck tongues.
