Likely 3/8 as that is the Saturday. We have tried Friday before and it just doesn't work as well for the locals. Sunday doesn't work for me due to flight schedules.

Ruth and I will be there. And I like the 2011 VP theme. It will give me (and others?) a chance to taste them while they are still available to buy.

will honestly say that we 'll walk out with purple mouths and teeths with a full sensation of tannins.

are there particular houses you're interested in? I can bring those instead and we can do other mature bottles?

would a tasting of "bring one of your favorite bottles from your cellar" work?

Works for me. I will probably still contribute one of those 2011 Stone Terraces that I'm getting from you because they'll already be in NYC and so won't need to be shipped.

perhaps it's time to do that fonseca tasting we've all been talking about esp after those comments on ftlop about doing verts.

I have the below bottles immediately i'd happily be able to contribute

55, 66, 70, 75, 77, 80, 85, 92, 94, 97

if we do guimareans I can throw in a few more.

I'm pretty sure Sushi can fill in the blanks too if not, I'd hate to goto offsite storage, but will if need be.

if we want to go crazy, I can find a source for the 48.

I'd love to do a Fonseca vertical! I can't contribute anything that g-man doesn't already have, but can help with any needed purchases if this is what we do.

i think it may be more equitable (for me) if i say the cost of some of these bottles.

esp the pre 70 bottles. even so if we get 10 people i can't see the bottle cost exceeding 50-70$/person

If there is still room I'd love to join.

I only have the 1985 and 2000 Fonseca, not sure if needed/desired. Would be happy to split the cost too.

Had it in the back of my mind that you'd be organizing a tasting again this year and meant to come check it out but only got around to it now. Hope not too late!

We have our tickets! Usual schedule... arrive Friday evening in time for dinner somewhere, leave Sunday late afternoon.

Are we set on the theme? Fonseca vertical, mostly supplied by g-man with the rest of us adopting/splitting cost?
