Cockburn Porto Vintage 2011

Cockburn Porto Vintage 750ml 2011         
Sku: 1842030*

 Vinous 95 points (May 2014)
Bright, full ruby. Deep, vibrant nose melds kirsch, minerals, licorice, bitter chocolate, lavender and violet. At once dense and penetrating, displaying terrific floral cut to the primary, high-pitched flavors of black cherry, minerals, spices and white pepper. Boasts outstanding fat and inner-mouth floral lift, with bright acidity contributing to the wine’s light touch. An utterly seamless young port with outstanding mounting length and precision and the spine to support a slow and glorious evolution in bottle. A great vintage for Cockburn, and an amazing value in world-class wine for laying down.

The Cockburn’s Vintage Port is sourced from their two main vineyards, Quinta dos Canais and Quinta do Vale Coelho, plus a small contribution from Quinta do Cachao de Arnozelo. Around 55% of the blend is sourced from Touriga Nacional vines in Quinta dos Canais, the remainder of the blend 30% Touriga Franca, 5% Sousao and 10% a mixture of old vines. The fruit was picked between September 8 and October 5 at Canais and between September 12 and 30 at Vale Coelho. It has a lifted bouquet with raisin, fresh dates and some lovely tobacco and sandalwood aromas that lend the aromatic profile complexity, although it feels rather compact at the moment. The palate is very well-balanced with a spicy, black pepper-tinged opening and very good structure. There is wonderful focus here, with a refined, clove-tinged finish and a long, spicy aftertaste so you do not forget it in a hurry. The 2011 Cockburn harks back to those classics of yesteryear. Cockburn’s is back. Tasted May 2013.

Amazingly fresh and juicy, with concentrated raspberry and dark cherry flavors that are well-sculpted and pure. Very minerally midpalate, this offers a fruity finish that features luscious chocolate notes. A sleek and vibrant style. Best from 2030 through 2060.K.M.
