2007 Cockburn LBV

Post by AHB » 21:26 Sun 12 May 2013

Dark red in colour; 75% opaque. Showing a little delicate raspberry on the nose. The soft raspberries show on the palate with pleasant gentle tannins prividing some structure. Air on the palate releases more of the raspberries. The aftertaste is soft, gentle and persistent. A lovely, elegant and lingering port. 86/100. Drunk 24 April 2013 at the 2007 LBV post BFT offline.
