Very intense purple color. The wine has lovely aromas of violets. Rich cassis flavours dominate the palate and combine perfectly with the typically dry and elegant Cockburn's finish. This vintage will be recorded as one of Cockburn's finest due to its great complexity of flavours, balance and rich tannins. The depth of this wine will ensure a long and perfect ageing potential.
"The 2007 Cockburn Vintage Port offers aromas of fruitcake, licorice, mineral, and black cherry. It is a bit more forward and elegant than its sibling with layers of flavor, outstanding focus, and impeccable balance."
The Wine Advocate
"Very sweet and grapey, with loads of raisin and raspberry jam on the nose. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with chewy tannins and an outstanding finish. Really mouthpuckering. A solid and pretty 2007."
"Good deep, dark ruby. Restrained, very pure aromas of blackberry, boysenberry, black cherry and licorice. Then sweet, pliant and deep, with excellent spicy density to the dark fruit fla vors. This really spreads out to saturate the palate. Still a bit youthfully aggressive on the finish, but there's nothing hard about this vintage port. Built for long life."
