Estate Notes

Cockburn's 1983 vintage Port comes from a very good Port vintage and was purchased in its original wooden case - a slow burning Port vintage, once underrated, but has now developed beautifully in bottle - being complex, harmonious and balanced.

Cockburn is arguably the world’s most popular port house. Founded in 1815, and now owned by Beam Global Spirits & Wine Inc, with its four extensive quintas, it has quickly become the largest owner of land in the port district. It is also one of the most progressive port producers, a leader in research and development.

Reviews

"A big, tough Port for long-term aging. It underlines what people mean when they say a great young vintage Port should overpower one's plate with fruit and tannin. Inky color, with perfumed cherry and berry aromas, full-bodied, with tons of tannins, intense cherry and berry flavors and a lingering finish." Wine Spectator
