Cockburn Port

cockburn-vintage-port
Cockburn is the most well known brand of port thanks to its Special Reserve, the worlds biggest selling ruby port. In the early 20th Century it had an enviable reputation for selling the finest quality Vintage Port such as the legendary 1912. However its sale in 1963 and the subsequent focus on the Special reserve led to the decline of the vintage port side of the business.

The nadir for the company was when they decided to ignore the 1977 vintage, probably the finest of the 70's, opting instead to declare a lacklustre 1978 vintage. After a period in the doldrums the formal acquisition of the company by the Symington Family Estates (SFE) in 2010 (who made the wines from 2006) has led to the revival of the brand. SFE have worked hard to rebuild this historic brand by focusing on producing high quality port again. The recent vintages such as the 2015 and 2016 are near the top of the form.

Cockburn Port, 2015

Vintage Port
Single Bottle

This 2015 Vintage Port Wine is only the second Cockburn’s Vintage Port made by the Symington family since it acquired the brand name from Beam in 2010, having bought the vineyards and cellars in 2006. Its declaration of a 2015 Vintage Port is the latest in a number of innovations and investment to mark the company’s bicentenary, with the brand having been founded in 1815. Up until the 1950's Cockburn’s was one of the Douro’s leading Port producers, with its Ports commanding some of the highest prices at international wine auctions. However its rapid expansion into the mass market in the second half of the century served to damage its reputation for fine wines.

Cockburn Port, 2011

Vintage Port

The 2011 Vintage Port Wine from Cockburn is distinctively fragrant with esteva (rockrose) on the nose, indicative of the substantial Touriga Nacional contribution to the final blend. In the mouth there is a wonderful, pure fruit quality (red cherries and strawberry) denoting the fresh acidity, which underpins the wine's structure and balance. A wine of great finesse and poise.

Cockburn's 2011 Vintage Port pairs wonderfully with chocolate desserts, such as chocolate mousse, creamy blue cheeses like Stilton or Roquefort.

"Great nose here with flowers, leaves and a wet earth character. Full body, lightly sweet with a massive finish.

Cockburn Port, 1997

Vintage Port

Cockburn’s Vintage Ports are made both by foot treading in traditional open lagars, and in modern temperature controlled fermenters. Cockburn’s historically has declared vintages less often than other houses, selecting only those years that fit their more elegant style.

Wine Makers Notes 1997 was an excellent year in the Douro Valley. The harvest was one of the longest in living memory: at the far eastern extremities of the Upper Douro, picking began before the end of August and continued until the second week of October.

Press Quotes "Wine of the Week - A classic. Enjoy now or put away for another decade.

Cockburn Port, 1975

Vintage Port

The 1975 Cockburn has a huge nose of chocolate oranges and marmalade but with an interesting twist of rose perfume. Slighltly hollow entry, slow to develop in the mouth but patience rewards with lovely fruit and plenty of bitter orange. A touch of heat on the aftertaste, which settles quickly to a soft and sweet length of red licorice. The PortForum.com

Cockburn Port, 1963

Vintage Port

"Perfectly integrated and showing cherry, raspberry, baker's spices and hints of fig on the nose and palate. With air the fruit became more plummy in character and picked up more complex dried fruit notes. It's sweet, but not Graham's or Fonseca sweet and there's actually some nice acidity to the wine that keeps it fresh. Seamless with the alcohol sewn into the fabric of the wine nicely." Cellar Tracker 2012

'Bright ruby red. Full rich red chocolate spicy aroma. Ripe rich round slightly hot fruit on the palate'. Cellar Tracker tasted 2005.

Cockburn Port, 1935

Vintage Port (Unlabelled, embossed capsule)

92 points from the Wine Spectator… 'Superlative finesse in a bottle. Light red, with a claret-like black currant nose, medium-bodied, with superbly balanced plum and cherry flavors, medium soft tannins and a long finish. It is truly wonderful now. One of Cockburn's greatest wines. (Feb-90)' 95 points from the Wine News... 'Intense purple/black hue; holding very well. Lively, forward bouquet of black cherry, dates and a wisp of mint. Loaded with opulent fruit that replicates the nose; ribbons of flavor resonate across the palate with a defined sweetness that coats the finish. A classic vintage port that was heralded when bottled; it hasn’t lost a degree of its intensity.
