      Winemaker Notes

      Cockburn's Special Reserve is the world's most popular premium port. It was first created in 1969. Then, it was the first of its kind and caused a revolution in the way Port was seen and drunk by people around the world. Our winemakers have stayed true to the original style of this remarkable wine. We select only the finest, most concentrated flawlessly perfect grapes from Cockburn’s vineyards at Quinta dos Canais, which are picked by hand during the harvest and then after a little 'pisa' (that’s our word for grape-treading in Portugal) we turn these into wine.
      Our Special Reserve still has the lusciously ripe, vibrant fruit of youth and lovely tannins, which give it the slightly peppery spice on the tongue. But it also has the elegance of age: the softness and smoothness that can only be achieved by slow ageing in old oak barrels. That’s what puts the Special in Special Reserve.
      It pairs particularly well with cheese and other desserts. And it will stay good for up to six weeks once you’ve opened it.

      Delicately spiced fruit cake bouquet. Dense and rich on the palate with plump plummy fruit. Tannic bite at the back.

      COMMENTARY: The Cockburn's No. 1 Special Reserve Porto shows that sweet, fortified wines can be stylish and excellent. TASTING NOTES: This wine combines delicate black fruit and graphite in its aromas and flavors. Pair it with a bittersweet chocolate torte. (Tasted: April 1, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
