1927 Cockburn

Post by AHB » 23:25 Sat 15 Nov 2014

Honey brown colour, 30% opaque. Medicinal, oxidised nose of rosemary oil. Lovely thick texture with a good intensity of flavour but totally tertiary - lots of dried fruit, golden sultanas and nuts with a lovely acidity. This grows and becomes very intense while on the palate. Gentle coffee and a lot of heat on the aftertaste but coffee and Fisherman's Friends on the long finish that is surprisingly intense. A mature port that is on a slow decline. 90/100. Drunk 24-Sep-14. Decanted 5 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
