SCP-DFS went to Sainsbury’’s, and came back with two of the Sainsbury’s 2007 LBV, ‟Bottled by Symington Family Estates”.

I am not far from Morrison's. I will volunteer to bring a Morrison's own label 2007 LBV provided everyone else promises not to. I do not want to be left with an unopened bottle of 2007 LBV that I am forced to include on my drinking list for next year!

Yes I also promise. I see there is a Co-op Food near to my father's house and also (if that proves dry) one off Kingsway.

Indeed, the placemats for Wednesday 24th April (2007 LBVs) will also need printing, and it would be inconvenient to carry them around the BFT. Perhaps the same person could print, and bring them to The Bung Hole on Tuesday 23rd. Please? (My 2007 LBVs will be brought to TBH on Tue 23rd: same could happen to the placemats.)

Use your palate and nose, and judge for yourself. But some differences are merely marketing: if two supermarket are selling Blogg Brothers’ Ruby, there can be price competition. If one supermarket sells Blogg Brothers’ Ruby ‘Pebbles’, and the other sells Blogg Brothers’ Ruby ‘Gravel’, there is no price competition. And the wines might, or might not, identical. Indeed, might be identical in some years, and not in others.

Which isn’t so different.

I am not in my office before either of the tastings so cannot print.

I will visit Asda later today, as well as Morrisons, and see whether Asda have any 2007 LBVs not already included.

I now own a bottle of Morrison's Own Label 2007 LBV. Asda sell Own Label Finest Reserve, but not LBV (why would you when BOB Finest Reserve is £8 and Cockburn 2007 LBV is £9?). Lidl only sell a reserve ruby (from C da Silva @ £9.29).

Costco are reputed to have a good own label range of ports if anyone is near a Costco.

Could the owner of the thread add a list of the ports we will be drinking to the first post please?

Are you doing blind, or sighted?

Blind would eliminate label bias.

There’s also a simplicity to it. We might have post-BFT leftovers. I have invited one trade person to show up when he can, if he can. That flexibility is easier if everybody knows everything all the time.

That man might be bringing a BOB that is, very unusually for the UK market, produced by a shipper he represents.
