1955 Cockburn vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:01 Wed 11 Jul 2012

Slight cloudiness, mature red colour. Mature on the nose, but very subdued. Plenty of sweet fruit, and an excellent mid-palate dominated by fruit and supported with ripe acidity. Very flavoursome. Thick textured aftertaste, lots of sweet fruit. Good finish. Nice port. 85/100. 13-Jun-12. 1 hour decant.
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

Ck55: Brisk red, 40% opaque, but cloudy. Nose had heat, and stewed fruit, but good port behind. Generally excellent, except for the mid-palate hot bitterness, perhaps even acridity? JDAW.
