I have posted in a new thread for “Wines that you might like see stocked” and halves of Vargellas is on my wish list. .
You may be able to help?
But the book seems to be a great resource, for free, so to speak.
BTW, I would appear to be a Philistine when it comes to port.
I adore the almost medicinal, (Benylin, other cough medicines are available!) tang one gets from a just decanted port. I like mine consumed that evening, I love the fiery immediacy of the first 12 hours, as this dissipates over a day or two; then I’ve lost interest. Yup, I said Philistine and for most of you, stop throwing the rocks.
Mind you, in the vast majority of cases a bottle is decanted for dinner with friends, normally six. So the bottle does not survive the evening. On one infamous occasion after an International involving Wales, a couple of my Welsh “pals” commandeered the decanter at their end of the table. I was engrossed in conversation (We Welsh can talk, never using one word when 10 will do!) and by the time I emerged looking to see how good the port was, I was confronted with an empty decanter and some barely shamefaced friends. And so, for that dinner we had two bottles of port and truly catastrophic hangovers the following morning. And Wales did win, you knew that!?! LoL
