COCKBURNS - Vintage 1997Vintage Port
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.

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.
