Port Basics White Rose









(Port) Wine of the month December 2016: Cockburn Vintage Port 1912

This year's wine of the night at the traditional Portforum-christmas-tasting, very closely followed by an extremely convincing Dow Vintage Port 1945 and a surprisingly well Tuke Holdsworth Vintage Port 1927. Without medals: Martinez 1922, Taylor 1924 und Taylor 1955. I can imagine an evening less pleasant…

Medium red colour without any rim. Intense, complex bouquet with tobacco, malt and white pepper. Also balanced on the palate, malt and tobacco, long, with hints of coffee on the background. Long, extremely long aftertaste. 19
