2011 Cockburn

Post by AHB » 08:30 Sun 18 Aug 2013

The initially dirty nose, cleans up with a couple of days to become attractive and perfumed. Satin smooth entry brings aromatic fruit and cigar ash tannins which are firm and in balance. Lovely sweet blueberry aftertaste and a long, gentle fruit driven finish. A very fine, elegant port in a harmonious and elegant style. 92-94. Tasted over 1-4 days as part of the extended 2011 tasting.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Taylor 2010 LBV
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
