1935 Cockburn

Post by Alex Bridgeman »

Ck35, unknown UK bottler, decanted 30 minutes. Deep chestnut red, 40% opaque. Delicious nose of sweet red cherry, spiced with cloves. Very attractive. Balanced and mature palate, sweet and fragrant with clove and nutmeg. A little spirity from the lack of time in the decanter, but still very nicely balanced. Such a delicious aftertaste, rich with dried fruit, cloves, nutmeg and red liquorice. Great length. Such a lovely, mature Port. Sweet, delicious and haunting. 91/100. Tasted 13-Jan-22. Decanted ½ hour.
Top Ports in 2021: Niepoort Garrafeira 1931; Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Cockburn 1969 Single Harvest Tawny

Top Port in 2022 so far: the most stunning bottle of Quinta do Noval Nacional 1931. I have never drunk such a wonderful bottle of Port.
