Cockburns Port Vintage 2011
- Show All (55)
Hot and rich, nice and sweet. Very nice.
Dark eggplant color. The nose really had me going with figs, dates and mocha initially and some anise showed up later with a touch of espresso beans. The palate was not as exciting, although solid at this point. The '94 exhibits a medium-body with black cherry, Kirsch and rich dark chocolate undertones. This is a puzzling wines in that I had an impression that this seemed a bit advanced for a '94, yet there were many qualities that showed the youthful if not playful vigor and prospects for cellaring this Cockburn until it peaks around 2015-2025.
Tried a 375ml bottle. Heavily sedimented but Oh My God, it fills the mouth and curls around your tongue in a mannner that should be a felony. Tannins are mostly settled, berry and chocolate overtones. Drink this alone or with someone you are very close to (or someone you want to get very close to).
Three and a half glasses
External Reviews for Cockburns Port Vintage
The fresh herb-laced aromatics of the dark-colored 2003 Cockburn Vintage Port reveal loads of spirit-infused black fruits. Armed with a gorgeously rich and fruit-packed mid-palate, this chocolate, black cherry, as well as sweet plum drenched wine appears to slightly drop-off before roaring back to display a long finish. After 4 days of air, this wine exhibited disturbing levels of volatile acidity. Anticipated maturity: 2010andndash;2020.
Nicely made. Very subtle aromas of crushed berries, roses and lavender. Full-bodied, lightly sweet, with big juicy tannins and a long fruity finish. Best after 2010.
There is a nice presence of fruit on the nose. A plump palate with a soft and seductive structure. The finish is sweet with a creamy roundness.
Fantastic aromas of blackberries and tar. Lightly stemmy, which is the sign of a great young Vintage Port. Full-bodied, with wonderfully integrated tannins and a lasting finish. Lots of plums and raspberries. The new 1927? Best after 2012. Tasted twi... Wine Spectator. A Port wine from Douro in Portugal. 2003 Cockburn Vintage Port 750ml
Fantastic aromas of blackberries and tar. Lightly stemmy, which is the sign of a great young Vintage Port. Full-bodied, with wonderfully integrated tannins and a lasting finish. Lots of plums and raspberries. The new 1927? Best after 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
A big and juicy, young vintage Port. Round, with loads of very ripe roasted and raisiny character. Full-bodied and medium- sweet, with a tannic backbone. Try after 2008.
Cockburn vintages in the past have built a reputation for elegance and grip. Peter Cobb, whose family has been a part of Cockburn since the 19th century, has promoted that style tirelessly since he joined the firm in the sixties. Recently, when questioned about the glorious fruit intensity of the rsquo;94, he allowed as how Cockburn had made a conscious though not dramatic shift in their house style. Hearing the market demand for richer, more forward fruit in their Ports, Cockburn blended for a little less elegance and a little more lusciousness. The result is a wine of classical proportions. The huge volume of fresh black plum and berry fruit may be a bit blunt at the moment, but the potent tannic structure handles it with grace and grip. Remarkable balance will hold this powerful wine for decades.
