I am ashamed. This is the worst tasting note I have ever taken, and that isn't a high bar!


AHB deserves huge thanks for bringing along such a fabulous bottle to such an informal and relaxed evening ...

...Thank you, AHB! 88)




Sandeman deserve great credit for producing such a wonderful Vintage Port ...

... Well done Sandeman! Great job! :D




DRT deserves to be taken outside and flogged for recording this less than helpful note...

Perhaps I deserve a little redemption for guessing Cockburn 1945? (big shipper with the last two digits adding up to 9? I was so close!) - ok, maybe not. :crying:

A very long shot guess - for some strange reason, Cockburn ducked the '45 vintage and declared '47 instead..

From a half bottle purchased from Alfreton Antiques of Alfreton, Derbyshire in 2005.

Deep orange in colour, with a centre the colour of burnt sienna; 40% opaque. Rosemary on the nose, with fresh roses and sage. Light bodied, sweet but balanced entry. Bitter rose hips at the core but with an offsetting muscvado sugar and caramel. The bitter tone never quite goes and almost turns into a burnt, blackened sugar flavour. Lovely aftertaste, full of golden syrup and intense marmalade before leaving the impression of a wonderful coffee. Delightful wine. 89/100.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
