1967 Cockburn vintage port

Post by AHB » 19:44 Sun 06 Nov 2011

Reddish-brown appearance, looking less evolved than the Ferreira '63; 50% opaque. Quite closed on the nose, showing some heat and stewed fruit - or maybe jelly beans. Sweet entry, initially showing flavours of soft toffee and red licorice. Good balance with gentle acidity supporting the flavours. Softly tannic aftertaste, coffee dominated but with lingering fruit. Very tasty port. 85/100. Drunk 13 October 2011.
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
