I can answer most any question about wine- types, styles, grape varieties, regions, vintages, proper storage, production, wine and food pairing, wine service, decanting, proper glassware, serving temperatures etc. Regarding questions about specific bottles of wine, since I live in the U.S. my focus is on wines imported here. I can't answer questions about spirits and liquor valuations.

I currently teach Wine courses at Napa Valley College, am an international wine judge, written many articles for publication, and have been a guest speaker at way too many wine conferences to remember. 25 years in the business. With Liz Thach and Janeen Olsen, I authored the definitive book on wine marketing: Wine Marketing & Sales, Strategies for a Saturated Market by The Wine Appreciation Guild, which won the Gourmand International Award in 2008 for the best wine book for professionals!

I have 40 year`s experience tasting, collecting and enjoying wines as an amateur enthusiast. Bordeaux and Port are my particular loves and I regularly buy and sell at auction. I have a good library and frequently participate in on-line discussions. I can only help with valuations, buying or selling if you tell me where you live as there are many variations around the world.

Hi Evelin,    The only Ports, or other wines, where the production year can be identified easily are those of a stated single vintage as everything else will be a blend - unless a bottling year is given

2014-07-19 Morgan Brothers Lda Port:

Hi Evelin,    You have an old bottle of aged Tawny Port from an old-established company that was owned by Croft from 1952/2001 until it was sold to The Fladgate Partnership.    The name hasn't been used

2014-07-15 Is it drinkable now?:

Hi Khetpapol,    I'm afraid the chances of pleasure from this after so long arn't very high as AC Bordeaux is the lowest quality grade, used to indicate that the wine was made somewhere in the Bordeaux

Hi Jennifer,    It probably wasn't a very good idea to store these in a garage as the seasonal temperature variation in CA may have shortened their lives. But the DP's, Palmers and Montroses, at least
