I am unlikely to be able to attend on the new date, if I am able to it’s likely to be a last minute change of plans.

If plans change, I’ll just have to take the risk that a space comes available for me.
Top Ports in 2022: Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port. I cried with joy.

2023: Fonseca 1966. There are not many better Ports, except a good bottle of Fonseca 1927. Wow!

There are at least three (and probably more) spaces still available for this tasting, and potentially a couple of bottles available for adoption.

If you'd like to attend please shout. Newbies welcome!

Hi, Can I bring another friend of mine along who's dabbled with Port please ?

His name is Richard C and he will need to adopt - I've briefed him as to the way these things work ....

As it happens I've just found two fonseca 1994 lbv's so if it works Richard can adopt from me if that doesn't work then I believe Charles is over stocked (??) And willing to help out.

THRA is out of the country so won't be attending.
Screagle and JohnInNYC haven't responded so I've removed them from the attendees.

Still plenty of space for this...

There doesn't appear to be any mad rush for this one, so I've put you in with adoption of my Delaforce 1995.
Memory failure: I do have Warre ʟʙᴠs from 1981, 1982, 1984, 1986. Any or all are at the service of the team.
Please may I request to adopt one of the above bottles for the 5th March please!

Ben - if you don't get a response from Julian within the next couple of days, let's just assume you're adopting one of my bottles.
