1970 Cockburn vintage port

Post by AHB » 22:03 Wed 11 Jul 2012

Lovely firm red. Very pronounced nose, wonderful to sit and smell time and again. A little neutral on entry, with lively acidity but gentle fruit. The fruit builds up nicely to very high volumes, delightful and delicious. Lovely aftertaste and a long, lingering and delicious finish. 91/100. 10-Jun-12. 9 hours 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

Ck70 dark red. Taste of leather, with heat, and plum and apricot behind. Spice as well. JDAW.
