Cockburn's Vintage Porto '11
Our absolute favorite port is Cockburn's Vintage Porto '11. This is a richly complex port wine, with a great balance from start to finish. The aroma has scents of fresh flowers and clean wet earth that perfectly suits the big berry flavors and dark, chocolatey finish. Of course, as with any good port, this one also has plenty of sweet raisin and dried fruit on both the nose and the palate. It's ideal as a dessert on its own or paired with a plate of creamy French cheeses or hand crafted chocolate truffles. Since this is a recent vintage, you'll want to let it rest in the wine cellar for a number of years. In fact, it probably won't be at its peak until 2030, and it will continue to age magnificently for another 30 years after that.
