NV Cockburn Special Reserve

New bottle, revised blend. Ruby centre and a lighter rim, youthful looking. Soft and gentle raspberry flvoured nose which reveals a slight harhness on the nose when swirled. Soft fruity entry, a delicious strawberry at first and then wonderful refined tannins that deliver such an elegant palate. Gentle, refined and with a long bubble-gum finish. This is a lovely ruby port. 88/100. Tasted 24-Feb-15.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
