"Consistently hot and dry, with no surprises and an optimal level of rain during the different seasons of the year. The vines grew with a low but steady level of water, allowing them to classically develop. A fine picking season in September lead to a harvest with above average quantity and excellent quality, mainly due to the consistency of the weather." He added, "It was a good year especially for Touriga Franca and Touriga Nacional, allowing a strong maturation of these leading Douro varieties." -- Miguel C么rte-Real, Cockburn's Viticultural & Commercial Director

2003 Vintage Scores:

"Fantastic aromas of blackberries and tar. Lightly stemmy, which is the sign of a great young Vintage Port. Full-bodied, with wonderfully integrated tannins and a lasting finish. Lots of plums and raspberries. The new 1927? Best after 2012. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 3,000 cases made."
