Cockburn Port, 1997

Vintage Port

Cockburn’s Vintage Ports are made both by foot treading in traditional open lagars, and in modern temperature controlled fermenters. Cockburn’s historically has declared vintages less often than other houses, selecting only those years that fit their more elegant style.

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.

Dolcetto, 1997

New

F.lli Vigliano

A native black grape variety of Northern Italy grown almost exclusively in the provinces of Cuneo and Alessandria in Piedmont. It is relatively easy to cultivate, although it is susceptible to fungal diseases. It ripens before Barbera and Nebbiolo and is often grown in high north-facing sites which would be unsuitable for Nebbiolo. The finest Dolcetto wines come from grapes grown on soils rich with white marls, especially those found on the right bank of the River Tauro. The wines generally are low in tannins and acidity and are usually fruity and fragrant, often with hints of almonds.

Fonseca Port, 1997

Vintage Port MAGNUM (1.5 L)

*** 93 Points, Robert Parker ***

Deep inky ruby with a broad red rim just turning to brick at the edge. Generous and seductive nose redolent of blackcurrant and cherry. Dense, luscious black fruit laced with dark chocolate, liquorice and roasted coffee. Exotic herbal and resiny scents emerge an hour after decanting. Later the fruit becomes more luscious and creamier, with rich raspberry jam flavours overlaying the dark fruity base. The full round palate is supported by thick well-integrated tannins and delivers an abundance of luscious chocolate and blackcurrant flavour which lingers into the long velvety finish.

Madeira, 1997

New

Justino's - Sercial

"Medium golden colour with hues of green and silver. Delicately intense nose of walnuts and pecan nuts with cinnamon and figs. The palate is beautifully firm, with an off dry impression which glides across the tongue in a very sleek and focussed manner; the acidity is electric . there is also a beautiful sapid salinity, flavours of lime and yuzu with rancio elements on the long, lingering finish. A sensational example. " Tasting Notes

Madeira, 1997

New

Justino's - Malvasia

"There won’t be a lot of this wine on the palate so it is a rare privilege to have tasted it. Amber in colour the wine is woody to the nose as it should be, it is on the palate that this wine reveals itself, extraordinary levels of layered flavour, nuts and candied orange, sweet but with an utterly bracing acidity that keeps the wine from being at all cloying. A rare wine and a world class wine, a true delight and a wine to share amongst the best of friends." Tasting Notes

Madeira, 1997

New

Justino's - Tinta Negra

"The wine has a dark amber color with a lucid and consistent yellow edge. More than a Marsala, the impact of the aroma is like a great Viccotto from the Marche region, although it is much finer. The bouquet has less caramel and is less volatile with more notes of prune, dried fruit and bitter coffee. The mouthfeel is sweet and caramel-like with notes of black tea and coffee, while the finish is invigorated by a distinct acidity." Silver San Francisco International Wine Competition

Martinez Vintage Port, 1997

Vintage Port

A classy Port, full-bodied and brimming with fruit flavour and silky, fine tannins that kick in on the finish. A subtle wine that takes you by surprise.

Tasting notes: Good aromas and flavours of pepper, raisin and ripe fruit in this young vintage Port. Medium-bodied, medium-sweet, with a fresh aftertaste.

Martinez Gassiot goes almost unnoticed in the Vintage Port circles, but the house often makes outstanding Ports that equal on better those of its sister house, Cockburn's Smithes.

Production of Martinez Vintage Port is limited, with only about 3,000 cases made in a declaration. Martinez include only one single quinta called Eira Velha, located west of Pinhão Valley, Eira Velha encompasses about 120 acres.

Quarles Harris Vintage Port, 1997

Vintage Port

Established in 1680, Quarles Harris became a subsidiary of Warre in 18th century. Since then, Quarles Harris has continued making good Ports under the Symington's ownership. Peter Symington, has a simple saying to remember about Quarles Harris: "Unless they are good we don't bottle them, having ensured that tradition and expertise is passed from generation to generation thus maintaining the excellent reputation of Quarles Harris.

An elegant, dense purple-colored offering, this 1997 offers up sweet aromas of melted licorice intermixed with blackberries, black raspberries, and cassis. Soft, precocious, and pure, this medium-bodied, suave, graceful port should be approachable in 4-5 years and last until 2040.

Quinta de la Rosa, 1997

Vintage Port

La Rosa's classic house style achieved by slow maceration in traditional granite 'Lagares' has produced a wine full of luscious forward fruit with a very attractive nose and a long velvety slightly drier finish across the palate

La Rosa is a vertically integrated Quinta rising to 450 metres above sea level, boasting many hidden micro climates within its cirtilage. Where possible we vintage and mature these small 'lotes' separately in order to achieve the maximum complexity in the finished ports, which would not have been possible from a less diversely planted property.

Quinta do Noval Nacional, 1997

Quinta do Noval Nacional Vintage Port

Quinta do Noval is a much-venerated name in the Douro Valley and Nacional is undoubtedly one of the most legendary fortified wines in the world. It is produced from a small area at the heart of the Quinta do Noval vineyard planted with ungrafted vines that have remained untouched by Phylloxera and has an average production of between 250 and 275 cases. 1997 was widely considered to be an exceptional vintage for Ports of fabulous harmony and incredible structure.

1997 was the follow-up to the sublime 1994 and somewhat incredibly managed to ascend to even greater heights. A benchmark Nacional that will bring several decades of drinking pleasure.

Quinta do Noval Port, 1997

Silval Vintage Port

Robert Parker: 93/100 "A small quinta owned by Quinta do Noval, the 1997 Silval is a splendid effort as well as a sleeper of the vintage. This full-bodied, saturated purple-colored wine displays abundant quantities of chocolate, licorice, and coffee bean notes intertwined with black berry and cassis fruit. Massive in the mouth, with sweet tannin and stunning concentration, this knock-out 1997 should drink well in 3-4 years, and last for two decades or more. Very impressive!"
James Suckling: [Wine Spectator] 91/100 "Impressive berry, violet and grape skin aromas. Full-bodied, with a solid core of silky tannins and a long, caressing finish.

Quinta do Passadouro, 1997

Quinta do Passadouro, Vintage Port

"The 1997 is an elegant Port, though having some good depth. Its tannins were melted and some secondary flavours were already starting to show, the fruit was chaging from ripe plums to candied figs. It is reaching its 2nd plateau of maturity.
Passadouro is an early drinker but this 1997 is one of the good port wines they made in the 90's.

Ramos Pinto, 1997

Vintage Port

A glass at Ramos Pinto, this was initially a little closed, particularly compared to the 1982 vintage alongside it. After some patient swirling prune and dried raspberry fruit emerges, with spice and tobacco. The palate is very smooth; sweet and chocolatey in the house style. It also has something rather savoury and mineral about it, with plenty of tannin. The overall feel is still quite young, just entering its drinking window, with a lot to recommend it as a port for the future. DF Review for Vivino, 2020

The extremely favourable climatic conditions combined with very steep vineyards result in a dark ruby wine, finely scented, soft and velvety on the palate.

Talinda Oaks, 1997

Sandford and Benedict Vineyard Pinot Noir, Santa Ynez Valley, California

'Talinda Oaks' is a private label produced for the proprietor of Sanford and Benedict
Vineyard

Tasting Notes The nose is initially gamey, but soon gives way to stewed raspberry and dates with
mace/nutmeg afternotes. This wine is certainly fully mature but not without merit. The pallet holds up fairly well with
soft autumnal fruit and a pleasant finish. Not a wine to lay down, but it will yield some pleasure over the Summer.
