Producer: Cockburn's





10 Years Old Tawny is a light, medium tawny-colored wine. The aroma is clean, showing a good balance of sweetness and acidity mingled with a soft nuttiness permeating through the rich complexity of wood-aged wine. It is round and delicate on the palate, yet crisp and lively with a soft, mellow background and a good long aftertaste. The crispness and "grip" that are the hallmark of Cockburn's tawnies come from the judicious blending and the continuous refreshing of these wood-aged wines. The Cockburn's style is less sweet than most other tawnies, which gives it a firmness on the palate and helps to avoid the cloying effect of many aged wines. Serve 10 Years Old Tawny port with cream desserts, such as cheesecake, creme brulee or flan, or simply pecans or almonds. The 10 Years Old Tawny can also be served slightly chilled as an aperitif, and served with almonds or pecans.

Wine Spectator

Lovely aromas of toffee, fruitcake and hints of honey. Full-bodied, with a medium sweetness and a vibrant dried fruit and walnut aftertaste. Delicious. Drink now. 7,000 cases made.

Score: 88. —James Suckling, September 15, 2003.
