2008 Cockburn Quinta dos Canais

Post by DRT » 09:01 Sat 07 Aug 2010

Cask sample tasted blind in June 2010 as part of this review

Violets on the nose. Nice thick entry with lots of dark, brooding fruits. Powerful and robust with a solid backbone of acidity and tannin. Everything about this wine feels big and well composed. The finish is long and mouth-watering. Very good port. 91 points.
