Thank you.

Cockburn is, of the 1927s, third equal. In a top top vintage, too.

Like an infatuated teenager I'm still hoping, despite mother's warnings, that the 1912 will fall for my charms.

Could you pop me on the wait list please. 10 years ago I sent some bloke I had never met £200 to attend this. Thankfully DRT was to be trusted!

Do we want to stop at 77? Despite 83 and 85 (which are not really worth opening) I could contribute 87 Tua and 92 Canais. 94 and 97 (and 2000 Cockburn and Canais) as well?

I have opened three bottles of Co83 in the past, from two cases, of which one was entirely VA free, one had just the slightest hint of VA and the third (which had suffered cork failure) was strangely 'woody' but was otherwise free of VA or TCA. All three were very dark and intense for their age.

Although this wine has a higher than average incidence of duff bottles, I'm not inclined to write it off completely..

Thank you for the offer.

There has been a decision to keep it at one session. Some of us — obviously not me — are older than we were, and two sessions was thought too much.

Fourteen people, one session: I’m deciding a limit of twenty Ports. We’re seven behind that at the moment, but not all those who can offer mature bottles have yet done so. If, after that, we’re light, then I will accept your kind offer of the likes of Tua 1987 and Canais 1992.

Is that fair? Does anybody disagree? If yes, why?

Yes at Bonhams. Failed to sell at the last auction and now offered again on a lower estimate, but still high given it's condition..

At that money I’m firmly against.

Let’s discuss in person on 8th May.

Seems a lot. What was considered imperfect with its condition?

If we are to be drinking leaky bottles at £956 a pop I will be out.

This decision has been made as an exercise of the organiser’s authority. It is not a team vote.

Agreed Julian. That makes sense. The tastings need to be affordable.

As I am drowning in work and trying to get the Port book self-published, DRT has agreed to become the Master of this tasting. To him, thanks.
