1967 Cockburn

Post by uncle tom » 20:16 Sun 31 May 2009

First bottle from a modest stash bought last year.

Decanted and drunk fairly casually over five days. Was approachable soon after decanting, and evolved little thereafter.

Fully mature, and will probably only deteriorate from here on. Good rich tawny red colour, pleasant restrained nose, and slighly nutty on the palate; a trait that other '67's seem to share.

Undemanding, and no superstar, but very agreeable nevertheless.

Score 6-5

Fully agree with you comments, just want to add that Cockburns 1967 is one of my favourite Ports to open to people who have not had any experience with older Ports to show how good it can be. It is indeed not a "blockbuster" port, but the quality is there despite it comes across as quite unobtrusive.

additionally a lot of friends I have are born in 1967 which contributes to the fact that I open this wine quite often :lol:
