I'd love to be employed in your job I work in retail liquor, but my job doesn't involve me tasting wines
For example, I got given a bottle at Xmas that was supposed to be a "$150 bottle". But it only had a gold cap, and a cork from a larger well known winery.
So who knows if the $150 was the China inflated value, it could've been a $10 bottle of garbage if on the shelves here in Aus.

I have some early ‘80s VPs in the cellar. It’s finding the right opportunity to open them is always the challenge.Great thing about ports. don't go off basically. Very smooth and a great drink for a winter's night.
I think I have a couple of older vintages. Will have to look.

Also plenty of old Tawnys that are probably much the same as the day they were bottled!
We stopped offering port at dinner parties. Too often we’d ask and there‘d be one or two “I’ll have a glass”, so we wouldn’t open the vintage port - then two bottles of tawny later…That's be beauty of a tawny though. You don't need to knock-off the bottle. You can just have one glass and put the rest away.
Precisely. They don't change with age, unlike a vintage fortified/port.
