1967 Cockburn

Post by jdaw1 » 09:32 Thu 18 Jun 2015

A theme suggested by Flash: the ‘Sweet-Spot Vintages’, being 1966, 1970, and 1977, in each of Dow, Graham, Taylor, and Warre. So on Wednesday 17th June 2015 we gathered at Davy’s Woolgate.

Ck67 (originally ‘Raph’). Mature. Soft. Unctuous. Fruit gone. Long and lovely.

Golden tone to the edge, mature copper red; 40% opaque. Gentle but fragrant nose, a little harsh. Balanced and gentle entry with a soft flavour profile with some nice fragances. Gentle flavours, sweet and with lots of fragrance and perfume. Good length. 89/100. June 2015.
