Friday 16th March 2007: chez mon pÃ¨re, a sesquivertical of Cockburn and Taylor (paperwork
). Present: JDAW MAW RAW WDBP RKA JFH MF SRG, and sort-of SVW. See review
A vertical of Cockburn, with some matching Taylor vintages, and some mystery bottles. Having had very little experience of Cockburn, this was educational for me (I do these things for their educational merits, of course not for pleasure). The Cockburn summary: cherries. Black cherries when young; glace cherries when old.
â€¢ Cockburn 1985
Excellent mid-tone pure red, nosing of liquorice, with huge cherrytastic fruit and maybe raisins. But simple: sugar and alcohol.
