So true, so true.

It has been stored upright, so I am dreading the cork removal, but I shall take care and hope for the best as I have spent years looking forward to this and Port is one of my favourite Christmas treats.

Well, yesterday was my second bottling (specifically recommended by my local wine shop). It was "Royal Oporto 2000", which is a 'late bottled vintage'. Sue thought it overly dry. To my taste, it was somewhat sickly sweet.
We're such beginners though. Don't really know what to expect from the different styles.
