Would a barros 1994 vintage work?
I also have the usual suspects....

Don't give my place away just yet - my alternative arrangements are unravelling.

Normal Venue B&F
Green Room booked, menu sheet as standard, if different from standard please notify by 1st June
I have lost track of who is in /out but suggest moving to the Red room or The Ovens if possible as the green room will be a squeeze for many more than 6 -8 max

My alternative arrangements are now in place so I will be unable to attend the 1994 tasting. A shame, as I love this vintage.

Hi Christopher

Would love to be able to join you and/or go on the reserve list if you are maxed ou? Could offer a few but perhaps only doubling up at the moment. So would search out something/offer a buy in,, bring something like a Fonseca or Grahams seeing as it night be interesting to have two, or to keep 94 honest a 92 Fonseca and 95 Vesuvio to see how they stack up?

Great. And will do Christopher. But I note no mention of cheese in any selection. Do I presume that is a given??

By the way the 94s I have are Croft, Dow's, Fonseca, Graham's and Warre's, but to be honest if they are blind, and these already provided, the 2 interlopers I suggested might be fun, but of course your call...

Best

I am going to have to withdraw from this due to a family bereavement. I’ll catch up at the 2017 tasting later in the month.

Christopher, I have not seen the first post being updated with the current guest list (this may well be a device failure my end) but, if you haven't picked up that I would like to be there if there is space, I would like to be there if there is space. As noted above, all I currently have from 1994 is Smith Woodhouse, so would need to adopt/buy in if someone else is bringing that.

Very sorry, but I have to withdraw - I now have an event I have to go to. Much less fun, I was looking forward to comparing how these were maturing :(

Hope you all have a good evening.

I’ve got my Croft ‘94 standing in readiness for Tuesday. Unfortunately I can’t get there early on Tuesday to help with setup. I could print placemats and drop them in beforehand if needed?

Christopher is being thoroughly useless at finding the time to update the thread, so I have seized ancient powers and have stepped in to update the list at the top of the thread.

However, to be fairer to Christopher, I know he's having a tough time at work at the moment so I'm doing this to help him out a bit.

AHB, DRT, DRL and TC have all had to withdraw.

THRA, BMHR, winesecretary and NickA are all keen to attend.

Splendid. Initials GEAG. I will appear at the B&F on the 11th, bringing Smith Woodhouse unless ordered not to. I look forward to it.

First post updated with revised attendee list. There are two spaces available.

Please could people bring the following:
CPR - Fonseca and Eira Velha (the latter for JDAW to adopt and give to AP)
MPM - Croft
GEAG - Smith Woodhouse
JDAW - Ramos Pinto
PW - Churchill
AP - RP to give to JDAW
Nick - Graham
THRA - Vesuvio
IDJ - Skeffington
BMHR, CMAG, RGO - something not on the list already or adopt from Tom

Nick - we don't usually pre-order dessert / savoury so you will be able to order cheese on the night. However, if you want plate of cheese as a starter or main, you'll need to order that in advance. If you look at the Boot & Flogger's website you'll find their cheese menu (a choice of 4).

Patience peeps. It takes even my superpowers time to update posts.

Take a look now and let me know if anything looks wrong.

Suggest adoptions of Dow and Warre to ensure we have all main players present if possible.
