1970 Cockburn vintage port

Post by AHB » 14:53 Fri 23 Nov 2012

Beautiful red-brown colour, still firm in the centre but lightening at the rim; 50% opaque. Gentle maraschino cherry on the nose. Gentle, sweet red cherry syrup on the palate, lovely tobacco tones add a delicious complexity. Soft and elegant in the mouth, with a delicious aftertaste and big, long-lasting finish. Very fine, elegant port; perfect for drinking today. 89/100. Drunk 21-Nov-12 after decanting 3 hours.
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
