Vintage ports 2000

I tasted all but one these wines in one concentrated session chez my fellow Master of Wine Clive Coates and was quite amazed that, perhaps because I was alone and undistracted with my laptop most of the time, I felt reasonably clear-headed at the end. I wanted to taste the wines blind but they had been set out in alphabetical order (Clive is very methodical) so I had to try to wipe my mind of the likely candidates. Actually, there were more oddball wines in here than I could possibly have imagined so, by turning the bottles round, I think I managed to come at them reasonably impartially - except for Taylor, Niepoort and Niepoort...
