1977 Cockburn

Post by AHB » 17:42 Sun 22 Oct 2017

A bicentenary release bottle available for £135 from Bar Douro in Flat Iron Square. Mature appearance; smoky but sweet fruit nose. Sweet and balanced jelly bean and red licorice palate with cleansing acidity and a great fragrance, lovely and clean but with plenty of impact. A peppery mace aftertaste and a sweet red licorice finish. This port is just delicious, elegant and refined but not in a wimpy way. 93/100. Drunk 03-May-17. Decanted 1 hour.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
