Tasting Notes

2012 tasting note year

Still amazingly toffee brown, deep with a hint of pink.  Slightest touch of VA (volatile acidity) on the nose.  Vanilla, lovely fruit flavours, almost tropical.  But a little on the light side.  Not as dry on the finish as many of the others.  Possibly now a little tired, excellent but a bit sweeter than “normal” Cockburn.

Pale golden colour.   Heat on the nose.  Caramel & vanilla, quite delicate, orange peel finish, definitely a tired wine.

Turning mahogany – tawny with an orange rim; lime marmalade aromas, slightly hollow after the (undeclared) 1948, fragrant yet mellow; very sweet and honeyed in style, retaining some peppery tannins with length and elegance though drying out on the finish.

Score: 3/4 Stars

With Cockburn label. Palish but lovely colour. Fragrant bouquet. Medium-sweet and correct weight and 'waxy' flavour. Good fruit though fading gracefully.

Score: 3 Stars

…despite a crumbly cork, a good warm tawny colour, fairly heavy crust or sediment. Soft barley-sugar nose which developed lovely powdery vanilla fragrance. Fairly sweet, nice weight, flesh, flavour and balance. Dry, liquorice finish. Attractive.

Score: 3 Stars

Slightly variable depending on bottler. Attractive and ready in 1971.

Score: 3 Stars
