Some surprises were on show. Joint WOTN were Harry's Taylor 1975 and Tony's Cálem 1977, followed By Charles' Warre 1980. Very good to welcome Harry to his first tasting, where he not only brought a fine bottle, but also held his own in the guessing stakes. Note to self, when an extra bottle gets opened, do have a think about how much port you are drinking.

Thank you everyone, and thank you all for trying my "extra bottle". If you have any comments to make on it, please do post your thoughts on the tasting note thread I've just created.
