...and only few seconds later, yours truly.
The verdict? Well, obviously I'm a bit biased, I made the stuff. But I'm really quite chuffed - it's a very decent port substitute. I have no measurable idea of its true alcohol content, but allowing for the spot of brandy and the wooziness after the second glass (oh, yes, we had seconds) I'd give a rough estimate at 16 or 17%.
It's not as sweet as a non vintage port, but has a nice depth of flavour and I reckon I'm going to need to make some more PDQ as well as probably laying a bottle to two down to see how it ages.
Perhaps I should put out a warning to film clubbers; the after-the-wine-has-run-out offer will be this stuff next time, and I'm not at all ashamed.
