Wine Makers Notes 1997 was an excellent year in the Douro Valley. The harvest was one of the longest in living memory: at the far eastern extremities of the Upper Douro, picking began before the end of August and continued until the second week of October.

Press Quotes "Wine of the Week - A classic. Enjoy now or put away for another decade. This is what vintage port is all about." Rating: ***** Perfection. Tim Fish & Norm Roby WineToday.com, January 2000

Wine Spectator: 88 Points "Lean with some good berry, herbal and cherry character. Medium-bodied, medium tannins and a light, sweet finish. Rather light for Cockburn's." Best after 2004. Issue date: 29 February 2000.
