1947 Cockburn

Post by g-man » 21:59 Sat 24 Nov 2012

Short cork but surprisingly was not branded.

a clear amber ruby color that is consistent through out.

A delicate florally nose of violets, red currants, cinnamon and freshly ground white pepper in a baked brown sugared room, just a port you can sniff all day.

So smooth, delicate but extremely balanced honeyed dates and a light burnt birch on the mouth feel finishing with an almond liquor backdrop.

A stunning ready to drink port that doesn't require any more time waiting.
