I wrote into Chowhound seeking advice on a port to buy as special gift. And got great advice - wound up getting a Taylor Fladgate vintage 1970.
"Lucious," reports Mr British Giftee. "Complex...wonderful."
And also, and this was also a revelation, StriperGuy suggested Warres LBV as exceptional value. And so it is! And best of all, the Warres we can afford to buy more than once a year! As promised, Chowhounders were toasted.
Thank you to all concerned!
