[WSET D5 notes] Deep purple, medium intensity, plum, blueberry, dark floral, "Douro bake”, gamey, savory, menthol, spice, sweet, VA, fortified high alcohol, medium+ acidity, medium+ fine-grained tannins, medium+ body. Medium flavor intensity esp more spicy notes, and savory minty earthy notes. Palate shows the youth of the wine, alcohol is unbalanced. Medium+ finish. Improve with further aging bc with so much solid dominant primary fruit it will turn into more tertiary fruit with bottle age, with the structure to support aging - tannins, acidity, and sugar will allow it to evolve and integrate.

Cooked fruits and brown sugar, delicious oxidation offering maderised notes. It’s easy to love and enjoy a wine with that much complexity and lenght.

This is the famous 77 - what they call the "forgotten vintage". Never declared, Cockburns under ownership of Allied Domecq. It's very fine, not great, fig and high spice notes, old old cigar box, delicate, hint of oxidation.

1994. Awesome on a winter night. Beautiful Persian Red color. Aroma of sweet prune, alcohol and a bit of aged sweet tobacco. Very clean mouthfeel, sweet on the tongue and more vibrant on the finish. Awesome balance. Stewed strawberries and melted tootsie rolls
