So far, Team :tpf: wrote:Having decanted the older port, Baron Forrester decided that he should fill his pockets with Cockburn 1847 branded corks. He, much to his mother’s dismay, had not cleaned his bedroom of empty bottles and pipes before going to see his wine cellar and its skeletons. But what he found instead was that the door to the cork room was wide open, with an intriguing smell of an old Taylor colheita coming from behind an ancient wardrobe with a glass door. Long ago the glass had been painted black inside so the equipment inside was hidden, but the corking machine was making a strange groaning sound. ‟The younger port: where did he put it?" groaned the young maiden as she was watched quietly by the Baron. The maiden's Father burst through with the younger port, decanted, in one hand and the tray of glasses in the other. "Ahh, old Taylor!" exclaimed the Baron, "Where have you put my tasting note book?" . "The wardrobe, if you dare look inside!"
