Churchill's Port Late Bottled Vintage 2002
Churchill's Port Late Bottled Vintage 2002

"Late Bottled means bottled after 4, rather than 2 years in wood. Our LBV is a rich, concentrated port from one good harvest, which has been aged for 4 years in wood. The word 'traditional' means that it is bottled without any filtration or refrigeration so that the wine can continue developing in the bottle before it is released for sale, two years later. At the end of the bottle ageing period, it is ready for immediate drinking. or alternatively, and this is purely optional, it can be cellared for a few more years to acquire one of the more pronounced characteristics of Vintage Port, which is a 'bottle nose' - at which stage it may have formed a sediment and require to be decanted." -The Winery Rating for previous vintage: 87 Points - Wine Enthusiast, March, 2003 "Churchill Graham is the youngest of the Port shippers, established in 1981. The Churchill LBV is a traditional, unfiltered wine, which can age well. This wine has richness and sweetness tempered with a layer of dry tannins and concentration." -R.V.

Cockburn Vintage Port 1994
Cockburn Vintage Port 1994

Wine Advocate #107 (Oct 1996) Rating: 91 points Drink 2004-2020 "An attractive, smoky, tarry, roasted black fruit character dominates this opaque ruby/purple-colored wine's aromatic profile. Low acidity, sweet, rich fruit, and a forward, expansive feel suggest this full-bodied wine will mature quickly, but it will last for at least two decades. Like a few other 1994s, it almost seems too easy to drink at this stage. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2020."

Cockburn's Late Bottled Vintage Port
Cockburn's Late Bottled Vintage Port

Cockburn's Anno is a Late Bottled Vintage port (or LBV), a style of port that is made entirely of wines harvested in a single year, from multiple vineyard properties. The vintage may or may not have been "declared" by the port house. While true Vintage Ports are aged in cask for two years, LBVs are aged four to six years in cask before bottling. Therefore, they are more mature and fully developed when bottled, with well-rounded flavors and a smoother finish. No further bottle aging is required. Additionally, LBVs are lightly filtered before bottling, eliminating the need to decant the wine.LBV ports are created in the style of classic Vintage Port, maintaining the vibrant fruit and rich tannins of the noble Portuguese grape varieties, but have a softer, smoother taste and are ready to enjoy at a much earlier date.

Cockburn's Tawny 10yr Port 500mL
Cockburn's Tawny 10yr Port 500mL
10 Years Old Tawny is a light, medium tawny-colored wine. The aroma is clean, showing a good balance of sweetness and acidity mingled with a soft nuttiness permeating through the rich complexity of wood-aged wine. It is round and delicate on the palate, yet crisp and lively with a soft, mellow background and a good long aftertaste. The crispness and "grip" that are the hallmark of Cockburn's tawnies come from the judicious blending and the continuous refreshing of these wood-aged wines. The Cockburn's style is less sweet than most other tawnies, which gives it a firmness on the palate and helps to avoid the cloying effect of many aged wines.

Score: 90 points
"This is an extraordinary house that seems to have been particularly successful with its vintage port since 1977. The 1983 is rich, concentrated, very fruity, and magnificently perfumed, suggesting that it is going to mature early, long before the 1977." -Robert Parker

Extremely Limited! No Discounts! 97 points Wine Advocate September 2010 "Deep garnet colour. The nose is just beginning to evolve into musky, dried plum and raisin aromas with whiffs of tree bark, nutmeg, cumin and cloves. The palate is seriously big and voluptuous with medium to high acidity and a medium to firm level of fine tannins. Very long finish." -Lisa Perrotti-Brown

97 points Winespectator December 31, 1999 "A blackstrap, powerful Port. Black, with intense aromas of raspberries, raisins, flowers and stems. Full-bodied and medium sweet, with a long, rich finish. Tannins pull at your palate. A wine for the future.--Dow vertical. Best after 2008. 13,000 cases made." –James Suckling

Fonseca Porto Vintage Port 1992 1.5 Liter Portuguese dessert wine

Wine Advocate # 97 (Feb 1995) Rating: 97 points Drink 1995 - 2035 "Fonseca has scored in both the 1991 and 1992 vintages. The 1992 is a majestic young port that should ultimately rival, perhaps even surpass this house's most recent great efforts (1985, 1977, 1970, 1963). This colossal vintage port reveals a nearly opaque black/purple color, and an explosive nose of jammy black fruits, licorice, chocolate, and spices. Extremely full-bodied and unctuously-textured, this multi-layered, enormously-endowed port reveals a finish that lasts for over a minute. It is a magnificent port that will age well for 30-40 years." -Robert Parker
