Our blenders have been tasting, categorizing and identifying the wines that might go into the final vintage blend for the best part of two years now. Only after the most rigorous selection was the final decision taken; it's been a long, focused, process. This wine is intensely purple in color, with aromas of blackberries and mature plums; full and firm on palate, with a long fruity finish resonating with chocolate overtones. Try with a Stilton Blue and hazelnuts.

Wine SpectatorFantastic aromas of blackberries and tar. Lightly stemmy, which is the sign of a great young Vintage Port. Full-bodied, with wonderfully integrated tannins and a lasting finish. Lots of plums and raspberries. The new 1927? Best after 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,000 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe fresh herb-laced aromatics of the dark-colored 2003 Cockburn Vintage Port reveal loads of spirit-infused black fruits. Armed with a gorgeously rich and fruit-packed mid-palate, this chocolate, black cherry, as well as sweet plum drenched wine appears to slightly drop-off before roaring back to display a long finish. After 4 days of air, this wine exhibited disturbing levels of volatile acidity. Anticipated maturity: 2010-2020.

Wine EnthusiastFruity and floral wine with an attractive, fresh, lifted aroma. The fruit is soft, with light tannins. This is a wine that will develop quickly.
