Tasting Notes

Richard Mayson critic source
2012 tasting note year

Mid-deep amber-mahogany; lovely lifted aromas, fine delicate and perfumed with a touch of toffee; sweet honeyed and mellifluous in style with dusty tannins on the finish, drying out and a bit flat after an hour or so in the glass. Not nearly as good as the last time I tasted this.

Score: 3 Stars

Very pale, light.  Smokey, light peppery spicy nose, attractive.  Hints of a bazaar spice shop!  Long finish, lovely fresh flavours, very good.

Pale gold.   Butterscotch nose.  Soft, pretty without being exceptional.   Raisiny fruit.  Short bitter almond finish.

2008 tasting note year

From the days when Cockburn was  one of the leading producers of vintage Port, this one bottled by Jeffersons of  Whitehaven, Cumbria:  good deep centre, amber-tawny rim; lovely open, fragrant, floral aromas, quintessential vintage Port nose; ripe, sweet, still firm with bitter chocolate power and depth, fine bitter-sweet finish. Very elegant with near perfect poise.

Score: 5 Stars

2000 tasting note year

My only remaining bottle decanted for a dinner party at our London flat in May 2000:  a lovely palish rosehip colour; low-keyed at first but a beautiful sweet fragrance emerged.  Still very sweet and powerful, combining softness and grip.  Glorious.

In November 2000 a bottle from another cellar: its classic 'waxy' bouquet, showing age but still sweet; perfect weight, thinning and fading, with ethereal, refined elegance.

Rosehip colour, gentle, harmonious bouquet, drying out but lovely, spicy, attenuated flavour.

1990 tasting note year

My notes started in 1953, 'only' 18 years old then (the Port, not me):  Full, fruity and spirity for a '35.  Perfect condition in 1966. By 1990, fully mature appearance, bouquet and palate.  Sweet, gentle bouquet; medium-sweet, lightish and lean.  Brandy and acidity a bit obtrusive.

Score: 5 Stars

1990 tasting note year

Superlative finesse in a bottle.  Light red, with a claret-like black currant nose, medium-bodied, with superbly balanced plum and cherry flavours, medium soft tannins and a long finish.  It is truly wonderful now.  One of Cockburn's greatest wines.

Score: 92
