Cockburn's: Special Reserve Porto

Cockburn's: Special Reserve Porto

Cockburn’s Special Reserve is a blend of ruby ports from various years and vineyards. It is aged before release and ready to enjoy immediately when purchased. This port offers the taste of a vintage port with about 5 years of bottle age.

Cockburn’s Special Reserve is medium dark ruby in color, with a nose of sugar plum, molasses and apricot. Semi-dry to medium sweet, the palate was of prune, apricot, molasses and raspberry. The finish was long and of chocolate and spice, something like fennel. Overall, this is a fine port with smooth tannins flowing with the palate. As the bottle opens - over a week or so from opening, the palate moved to pecan - like a sweet honey pecan pie - with molasses and apricot-spice notes as well. Delicious. Cheers!
