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.

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.

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.

Nebbiolo D'Alba, 1997

Achille Viglione

The Nebbiolo d'Alba has a lovely earthy bouquet. The nose has cherries, dark cherries, tar and slight dried rose notes. Complex and layered. Nice acidity. Medium tannins still present. Cherries on the palate too. Nice finish. Great food wine. Nebbiolo is a fickle grape famed as much for its pale appearance as for its tannic character and produces some of the most perfumed and richly flavoured wines. Though generally only medium-bodied, the wines possess rose and anise scented aromatics and deep flavors of cherry, orange peel and subtle green herb tones.

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 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.

1996 Fonseca Port

Guimaraens Single Quinta Vintage Port (Price includes a solid oak gift box with silk liner as illustrated)

Tasting note:
Complex and elegant bottle matured bouquet. Plum and cherry fruit with spicy, aromatic background. Lean, stylish wine with good structure. Fresh, firm finish that holds well.
Reviews
"It is not without reason that Fonseca is described as the Margaux of the Douro; its wines have a femininity and grace that never flatter to deceive. The 1996 Single Quinta is a perfect example; combining fresh aromatics and layers of berry fruit flavours with a firm but unobtrusive tannic structure. Enormously concentrated, and perfectly balanced this wine is archetypical Fonseca." Parker, buyers Guide.

Blandys Madeira, 1996

Malmsey Colheita Madeira

Blandys Colheita Madeira is aged in seasoned American oak casks in the traditional ‘Canteiro’ system, whereby the wine is gently heated by warm air in the lofts of the company’s south-facing lodge in Funchal. Over the years the casks are transferred from the top floor to the middle floor and eventually to the ground floor where it is cooler. The wine is regularly racked during the ageing process and is finally bottled when the desired balance of maturity is reached. Blandys 1996 Malmsey Colheita Madeira 50cl is 100% Bual and is a medium rich style of Madeira.

Chateau Certan-de-may, 1996

Pomerol

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Moderately saturated medium red. Somewhat riper aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, smoke, tar, tobacco and pepper, plus a hint of green coffee beans. More intensely flavored and vinous than the '97; in a rather fruity style but a wine of modest sweetness. Finishes with tongue-dusting tannins and more length than the '97, but still betrays a slight greenness. (ST) (5/1998)

Chateau Duhart Milon Rothschild, 1996

Pauillac 4th Growth Classification

*** 92 Points Wine Advocate ****

Reviews
"The 1996 Duhart-Milon-Rothschild is aging in wonderful fashion, to wit, a straight down the fairway Pauilliac. Now at 20 years of age, it has developed a fresh and very brine-scented bouquet with plenty of undergrowth and bell pepper aromas. You could almost imagine a bit of Loire Cabernet Franc in here! The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry, impressive body and backbone, likewise more than enough freshness on the structured finish laced with white pepper and bell pepper. Very classic in style, this is a Duhart for traditionalists, but I for one appreciate its style.

The dark ruby/plum colour is followed by a rich, lush, round, fully mature wine with low acidity, ripe fruit and a classic Bordeaux character.

The 1996 Chateau Marbuzet has a dark ruby colour. Iron, game and deep red fruits fill the nose with exciting aromas. Plump, seductive flavors cover the palate with a hit of '96 acidity on the finish keeping everything balanced and in proper order. A bit of lavender makes its way into things after being exposed to air for 60 minutes.

Chateau Pavie Decesse, 1996

St Emilion Grand Cru Classe

This estate has been rejuvenated thanks to the inspired leadership of Gerard Perse and it has never produced better wines. The 1996 has quantities of redcurrant fruit in the nose, along with earth and spice. This is a pleasant wine that is in its prime now and so will gain no benefit from additional cellaring.
