A PORT FOR THE HOLIDAYS: Cockburn’s Special Reserve Port ($20)
by Andrew Chalk
Cockburn’s Special Reserve Port is the world's number one selling Reserve Port, and for good reason. Originally introduced in 1969, it created an entirely new Port category that was fundamental to the success of Port and the Douro over the following decades. An exceptional wine selected for its richness and concentration, this Port comes from the finest vineyards in the Douro Superior and is matured in oak casks for five years. The youthful nose is packed with red fruit aromas of cherry, strawberry, and hints of plum. The palate is rounded with luscious red berry flavors that give way to a distinctive peppery finish.
