Cockburn’s Special Reserve Port

It had a very berry dominated nose, with some caramel aspects coming through, with cloves and aniseed peppered throughout.  The palate was a bit light for my normal tastes, but had a bit of tannin up front which was nice and gave it some guts.  Tobacco flavours came next, with a lot of spice, with it all being rounded up with strawberry and cherry flavoured tobacco. As a basic port, it is not bad. 80pts (Nov 2009)
