2011 Cockburn

Post by AHB » 19:17 Sat 27 Feb 2016

Deep purple-red in colour with a very narrow rim. Wonderful on the nose, floral and fragrant, attractive and mouthwatering. Delicious and fragrant entry, full of light sweet and fragrant bramble fruit. Gentle tannins hold the balance and persist through the aftertaste and long finish. Huge levels of the fruit throughout this port. This is a very fine port with the balance between the fruit, acidity and tannins that promises a long and fabulous life. Great port. 93/100. 24-Feb-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
