Cockburn's 2000

Release Notes

The nose is dominated by explosive aromas of violets, black plums and blueberries. On the palate layered flavours of black fruits, cacao and liquorice combine with robust tannins, leading to a long and concentrated finish. This Vintage Port should age to perfection over the next 20 plus years.

Tasting Notes

2002 tasting note year

Gorgeous aromas of crushed berries and plums.  Full-bodied, with plummy, sweet fruit and a long finish.  Super quality.  Best from Cockburn's in years.

Score: 92-94/100

2002 tasting note year

Potentially one of the most compelling wines of the vintage, this inky black/purple-coloured 2000 exhibits notes of scorched earth, malted asphalt, blackberry liqueur and pungent, penetrating intensity that reverberates in the mouth as well as the head.  Full-bodied, massive and concentrated, with a 45-second finish, this thrilling effort should drink well between 2010 and 2035.

Score: 95/100
