Hello Everybody !

Post by dmb999 » 19:53 Tue 06 Jan 2009

Hi There,

Just a brief note to introduce myself.
I'm a newcomer to the port scene but having enjoyed more than my fair share over the festive season I thought I'd do a bit of research and came across this excellent site.
Look forward to learning more about this fine drink.

Regards,

Marcus

Hello and welcome.

Did you have to register twice? I vaguely recall examining a user name like yours did I conclude that it to belongs to a spam-merchant? Anyway, I’m pleased that either I didn’t or that you tried again.

Hello, welcome on board :)
Any time not spend drinking port, is a waste of time.

Thankyou for the warm welcome.
I didn't consume anything spectacular, Taylor's 2002. May or may not be good by others' standards but I enjoyed it.
I have however made a recent discovery in my mother's cellar - 2 bottles of 1959 Niepoort Colheita.
Is this a good one ?

I had the 1957 last year and it was fabulous. One of these will certainly buy you a ticket at a port tasting :wink:

Terrible stuff. Not worth your bothering at all. Mild curiosity value at best sufficient that I’m willing to pay for cost of posting it to me.

Hi Marcus, welcome! First of all you have to post, post and post. To outstrip this shabby "Cruz Ruby Status" :)
