1967 Cockburn

Post by AHB » 22:17 Sat 04 Apr 2009

Light red in colour, crystal clear but with a hint of brown in the redness. Herbaceous nose mixed in with a sweet rose hip syrup. Thick texture in the mouth with a pleasant sweetness but a biting acidity cuts through the sweetness and brings a bitter cherry with it. Still full of life, but slightly unbalanced because of the bitterness of the acidity. Enormous aftertaste, big and incredibly flavoursome. A wine drinking well now but will hold at this level for a good few years to come, perhaps as much as a decade. 89/100. Drunk 4 April 2009.
