An undeclared vintage port from Cockburn, bottled for a family member. Deep red—a lovely colour, clear and attractive. 55% opaque. More subdued on the nose than the Cockburn 1967 shown alongside but showing similar sweet cranberry and a bit of pepper. Spicy and lively in the mouth, full of sweet fruit. Hot aftertaste and some burn before a long and sweet finish. Delicious port that is clearly up to the quality of a declaration. 89/100.
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
