Cockburn's 1991 Vintage Port

July 9, 2012
Question by: Brad, Toronto, Canada


I uncovered a bottle of Cockburns 1991 Vintage Port in my collection and wondered about your opinion on its drinkability.  I note that "late" is not found anywhere on the label.


Hi Brad, Yes, Cockburn's did declare a Vintage Port in 1991.  1991 was an excellent year and widely declared.  The wine should be enjoyable, but as with any older Vintage, much depends on how the bottle has been stored all these years.  By all means, we hope you will open and enjoy this Port with family and friends; you may want to take a look at our suggestions about Decanting and Serving Vintage Port.
