Cockburn

Cockburn's, a name synonymous with excellence in the world of port, has a rich history dating back to 1815. This esteemed producer has crafted exceptional ports using traditional techniques passed down through generations. Cockburn's is renowned for their commitment to quality, meticulous vineyard management, and expertise in the art of blending. Their range of port wines captures the essence of the Douro Valley and showcases the unique terroir of this prestigious wine region.


Among Cockburn's most celebrated offerings is their Vintage Port. Crafted from carefully selected grapes in exceptional years, Vintage Port represents the pinnacle of quality and aging potential. These ports exhibit intense flavors, complex aromas, and a remarkable ability to age gracefully over decades. Cockburn's Vintage Ports are highly sought-after by collectors and connoisseurs worldwide.


Another notable offering from Cockburn's is their Special Reserve Port. This premium blend showcases the signature Cockburn's style, balancing elegance and richness. With its luscious fruit flavors, velvety texture, and well-integrated tannins, the Special Reserve Port is a true delight to the senses. It is a versatile and approachable style that can be enjoyed on its own or as a perfect accompaniment to a variety of desserts and cheeses.


Cockburn's commitment to excellence is further exemplified by their Late Bottled Vintage (LBV) Ports. These ports are aged longer in oak casks, offering a depth of flavors and complexity that rival Vintage Ports. With their approachable and ready-to-drink nature, Cockburn's LBV Ports provide a delightful taste of the Douro Valley's unique character.

Wine Advocate (94-96)

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.

This shows fantastic graphite and dark-berry character with black-stone undertones and hints of dried roses. Full-bodied and very tight and precise. Good kick in the end. Love the polished tannins, which are totally folded into the wine. Reminds me of the 1947 Cockburn. Try in 2024.
