Porto Calvares Portugal Tawny Port NV

Member Review by Listen2PorcupineTree:

I gotta tell ya, I've had a lot of good port in my day ..... and at this price point you might think "nah, I'll pass" .... but you'd be wrong. My wife is Portuguese, and this was a gift from one of our Portuguese friends. And apparently they knew something I didn't ..... that you don't have to pay top dollar for a snooty English House name to get a good glass of port in your hands !!!! Turns out I have a couple of more bottles of this in the bar cabinet that I have been ignoring until now. All i can say is ...... Ka-CHING !!!!!! I am a pig in port hog heaven !!!!

Cockburn's (Coh-burns) was founded in 1815 and has grown to become one of the world's great port houses. Makers of a complete line of fine ports, including Cockburn's Special Reserve - the world's most popular premium port - Cockburn's is known worldwide for its mature, less sweet wine style. What sets Cockburn's apart from all other port houses is a rigorous quality control standard exercised on all aspects of production. Being the largest vineyard owner in the Port district also gives Cockburn's significant access to stocks of aged wines for its many fine blends. Cockburn's family of ports includes Special Reserve, Vintage Port, Anno (Late Bottled Vintage) and Quinta dos Canais (Single Quinta Vintage), Fine Ruby, Fine Tawny, and 10- and 20-year-old Tawnies.
