Dear David

How are you doing?
I have 2 bottle of old wine as attached picture, I don't know they still drinkable or not.. and can you tell me their value?

Thanks very much.


Hi Eddie,

These are both from Poças Junior, a Portuguese house that's a relative newcomer to the Port trade.

They are acquiring a growing reputation but both of your bottles are very old indeed, even for wines as long-lived as Port.

I'd drink them, with caution in case they have declined too far to still be enjoyable, as they'd be very difficult to sell and thus have no significant value.

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.


I would not feel confident answering questions on German wines or those of the USA, South Africa or Australia. But please check my prestige rating and browse "Browse Past Answers" at the top of this page to see if I'm the one you want to help on everything else! (PLEASE don't forget to tell me where you are if you want my estimation of value or help buying or selling!)

I also participate regularly on several other discussion groups.
