1950 Cockburn

Post by g-man » 04:27 Mon 04 Mar 2013

Clear Reddish brown (like fine aged red brick)
Popped and poured.

Too spirity so decanted back into bottle with a glass removed and moved onto the d'yquem instead.

11 hours later

A lovely nose of cinnamon, baking spices, baked plums.

The mouthfeel is lush, charming and inviting. Sweet buttered orange jam gives way to rich baked cranberries mixed with the aforementioned baking spices. Add a little air to the finish and the spices linger on for over a minute.

Lovely wine.

95 pts.
