Ref: 407

"Cockburn Small production. Considered a light vintage at the time. Up until this vintage, Cockburn were very sparing
with the number of vintages they declared: '27, '35 - not the '45 - and then the '47. Several notes in the mid-1960s. Slightly variable, depending on bottler rather than condition. Attractive and ready in 1971; a somewhat odd, medicinal smell and taste with rather high, prickly acidity in 1980. A decade later despite crumbly cork, a good tawny colour, fairly heavy crust or sediment; soft barley-sugar nose which developed lovely powdery vanilla fragrance. Fairly sweet, nice weight, flesh, flavour and balance. Dry, liquorice finish. Attractive. Next, in 1999, with Cockburn label Palish but lovely colour; fragrant bouquet; medium-sweet and correct weight and 'waxy' flavour. Good fruit though fading gracefully, Most recently: fairly pale, with red though pink/red highlights; pure liquorice,harmonious, well evolved; firm, good flavour and flesh, smooth texture, dry finish, delicious aftertaste. *** M Broadbent

This vintage port is shipped in a deluxe silk lined wooden presentation box with four wine accessories (corkscrew, wine pourer, drip stopper & wine thermometer) [worth £17.99] at no extra cost.
