2011 Cockburn

Post by AHB » 08:26 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Dark purple, firm rim. Fragrant and floral nose, full of crushed nettles and ripe blueberries. Blueberry palate, restrained and livened up with a licorice root tannin that gives an elegant structure, which leads to a soft chocolate finish. This has more elegance than other 2011 ports from Symington Family Estates. 92-94. Snapshot tasting on 20 May 2013.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
