COCKBURN'S 11 VINTAGE PORT

WINE ADVOCATE 94-96 POINTS - "The Cockburnís Vintage Port is sourced from their two main vineyards, Quinta dos Canais and Quinta do Vale Coelho, plus a small contribution from Quinta do Cach„o de Arnozelo. Around 55% of the blend is sourced from Touriga NaÁional vines in Quinta dos Canais, the remainder of the blend 30% Touriga Franca, 5% Sous„o 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. Cockburnís is back. Tasted May 2013."
