Cockburn's Quinta dos Canais 2006

Release Notes

Deep ruby colour. On the nose intense aromas of blackberry fruit and hints of bitter dark chocolate. On the palate full bodied and medium sweet, with very fine pure berry fruit flavours leading to a long and complex finish.

Tasting Notes

Richard Mayson critic

World of Fine Wine (magazine) source
2012 tasting note year

Deep, opaque, and dense, rich, and ripe, but still closed on the nose; very full, sweet, and rich, fleshy and quite opulent initially, with a touch of mint, eucalyptus, and esteva (gum cistus); a firm tannic finish but overall quite suave.  Lacking the weight of its peers but a good middle-distance wine for up to 10 years.

Score: 15.5/20
