Who wants to come out to play stay in and drink some Port?

Theme is Colheitas, unless the general consensus is to do something else.

Yes please, Colheita sounds like a great theme to me, I've got a couple that I keep eyeing up to open but haven't yet done so.

Yes please. I don't believe I have any in stock, but a new wine shop (Amathus) has opened nearby and has some Calem colheita I believe. Otherwise it will be a Kopke...

I might join you on the Pocas, I think I have the 2000 or a 97 Colheita.

@rich_n - neither the 2000 or the 1997 has a tasting note listed in the tasting note index so we'd be doing everyone a public service...

Well then I think we'll have to do our duty and cover both bases!

Undecided - options are Burmester 1990 (in half) or Warre's Otima 1995 (in 50cl). Also, neither are on the Index.

They appear to have quite a good selection of Calem - Amathus

I don't know about the rest of you, but this is not what I expected him to say.

I'm assuming he's pleading a fifth of a gallon.

Perhaps he was pleading that one or both of the options be upgraded to a fifth?

Nice.

I’ve decided on the Otima 95 only as best case is I might have to go to London at daft o’clock on Thursday morning :? . Worst case is having to work all evening on Wednesday and being unable to attend :( .
