Hi,

looking fwd to Wednesday. Hope the aircon works as it is quite warm outside these days! My choice of port will be definitely affected by the warmth outside! Obviously it will be blinded by tinfoil.

regards

Victim for a Wednesday now selected and made ready for ritual sacrifice (ie, double decanting) late Tuesday evening.

Alex

Do you want me to do placements etc?

I'm in the office tomorrow so easy to print A3.

Placemats would be really helpful, thank you.

I'm obviously out of touch organising Port dinners - I completely forgot about placemats!

Incidentally, if anyone would like to join us via Zoom, let me know here before 2pm and if we have a taker I'll schlep my laptop into London (and hope the BFT wifi is working).

Will do.

Decanted and Vac-u-Vin'ed at 2200 last night as had to leave at 0530 this morning.
Had a quick QA taste and seemed OK.

I have shortlisted two bottles. One (perhaps both, depending on how the One performs) will be opened shortly before I leave home.

Created and printed. Placemats are A3, so plenty of room to add in another bottle if needed.
Now just need to remember to take them to B&F.

Am running late on account of work and so ETA likely to be 7.30. Can someone therefore order me steak (m/r) and chips plus some greens and with Truffle Mac to start? Thanks!
