About Cockburn's 2015 Bicentennial Vintage Port
The venerable Port house of Cockburn has released this 2015 Vintage Port in celebration of their bicentennial anniversary. The grapes for their Vintage Port come from their home vineyard, Quinta dos Canais as well as Quinta do Vale Coelho, just next door and a little further east, and Quinta do Cachão do Arnozelo. Aged two years in oak barrels as required. Decanter Magazine scored this 96 points saying "Blend dominated by Touriga Franca (41%) and Touriga Nacional (37%). Mainly picked eight days after the mid-September rain: initially deep, ripe and dense on the nose, opening up to reveal a scented berry fruit bouquet. Lovely plum and berry fruit on the palate supported by fine-grained, gravelly tannins and a long, structured finish. Combines depth and finesse in equal measure." Limited!!
