Cockburn's Quinta dos Canais 2003

Release Notes

We are really happy with the quality of the 2003, it is vibrant in colour, with berry fruit tones complemented by floral aromas; beautifully balanced and with an elegant tannic structure and agreeably slightly dry finish.  (Miguel Corte-Real)

Tasting Notes

Deep ruby colour. On the nose lifted aromas of red and dark brambly fruits, with elegant floral hints.  On the palate, fresh lively fruit flavours, combined with hints of chocolate and a mineral edge. Firm tannins lead to a long firm finish.

2006 tasting note year

Opaque in an inky purplish way, nose of prunes, cocoa, tar and black pepper.  This is a feminine style of wine with bright, sweet pure blackberry and cranberry flavours and good acidity.  Delivers moderate weight and a medium to long finish with very round tannins.

Score: 91/100

2006 tasting note year

Lots of grape on the nose, with hints of dark chocolate and mahogany.  Full-bodied and medium sweet, with chewy tannins and a long raisiny finish.  Shows outstanding potential.

Score: 92/100
