2015 Cockburn

Mid-red colour with a purple edge. A nice nose of ripe fruit smelling very fresh. Ripe purple fruit on the palate, lively and fragrant damsons and bramble fruit with powerful elegant acidity. The tannins are very fine and almost hidden by the fruit. This is very easy to drink young. 89-91/100. 06-Nov-17.
Top Ports in 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
