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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
