2011 Cockburn

Post by AHB » 08:25 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Magenta centre, purple rim. Well developed nose with plenty of fruit. Soft fruit forward entry, mid-weight with a balance and elegance. The tannins are slow to show but are firm in grip when they eventually appear. Long and flavoursome finish. A fine return to the elegant Cockburn style of old. 92-94. Snapshot tasting on 24 April 2013 at the BFT 4.
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
