Cockburns Vintage Port 2000 75cl
Aromas of violets and blueberries dominate the nose and full-bodied palate. The wonderfully layered flavours are delivered on big smooth tannins and lead to a long velvety finish. This Vintage Port will age to perfection over the next twenty years, so says Jim Reader, General Manager and head of the wine making team at Cockburn in 2000.

|Product Origin;||Oporto, Portugal|
|Care Details;||Store away from Heat and light sources|
|Grapes Guide;||Blend of classic Port grapes including Touriga Nacional, Touriga Franca and Tinta Roriz|
|Vintage Notes;||The 2000 winter was mild and dry. Spring rain at flowering caused some reduction in overall crop size. Summer was hot and dry, giving a regular and uniform grape maturation until mid-August, when light rains brought welcome refreshment to the vines. The vintage began in the Upper Douro in the second week of September. The weather cooperated fully, providing warm and dry conditions during the day and cool night time temperatures. A suitably momentous wine from millennium year.|
|Decant;||If you have a decanter, use it for this Port. If you do not, try ‘double decanting', which achieves the same effect: pour the port in to a suitable neutral receptacle, such as a jug. Take especial care towards the end of the bottle- use natural light or a candle to see when the sediment starts to be poured. Without undue wastage, stop pouring at this point. Rinse then drain the original bottle, then pour the decanted port back in to serve. The process also opens up the full depth of tastes and aromas to be enjoyed.|
|Tasting Notes;||really evolved and complex; chocolatey palate with gorgeous texture and flavour. Enjoy now, its wonderful|
|Best with;||Lovely on its own or enjoy with fruit desserts, Cheese and especially good with Christmas Pudding|
Reviews: ROBERT PARKER RATING: 95 "Potentially one of the most compelling wines of the vintage, this inky black/purple-colored 2000 exhibits notes of scorched earth, melted asphalt, blackberry liqueur, and a pungent, penetrating intensity that reverberates in the mouth as well as the head. Full-bodied, massive, and concentrated, with a 45-second finish, this thrilling effort should drink well between 2010-2035"
