Darkest wine of the evening flight. My note simply says "lovely drinky stuff". I remember being surprised and impressed by this wine and it is one that can probably be obtained for not much money.

Mature red colour. A lifting nose, full of redcurrants and floral perfumes. A smooth entry, with enough acidity to make the mouth water, lots of fruit in elegant restrain, perhaps lacking a little complexity. A lingering and very elegant aftertaste. 88/100.
Miguel CÃ´rte-Real sent AHB some of his own notes on the various vintages, some obviously drafted in advance, some from the day itself.

Shipped by most firms and have proved very popular. Rather similar to the 1950s but better (W. Fletcher in 1978)
Lots of rian during the harvest, diluting a bit the must concentration.
A fine quality year of good average colour and body and sufficient concentration to develop into an excellent stayer and a wine of delightful bouquet and flavour. (J.Smithes 1968)
Richard Mayson sonsidered Cockburn's to be one of the best of the year.
