1967 Cockburn vintage port

Post by AHB » 11:15 Wed 24 Dec 2008

Very pale and light in colour, leading you to expect a port that is fully mature. The nose reinforces this expectation, showing leather and wax polish mixed in with a touch of spearmint. Sweet and balanced fruit in the mouth, great complexity and a lovely streak of bitters - although this may be a little too much for some. The aftertaste is not so big, but is mouthfilling and enjoyable with toffee and sweet mulberries. Mature port, ready for drinking now and unlikely to improve with more time in the bottle. 90/100. Tasted 27/11/08.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
