We blend several young wines from a few different years to give our Fine Ruby the richness and the fresh fruit that you would expect of a zesty young Port. It is then matured for a few years in large vats, which gives it both its lovely softness and its ripe red fruits flavors. It also keeps the intense, deep purple color of a nice and bright young Port.
Cockburn's Fine Ruby Port can be drunk in almost any way you can imagine. As a result, it has always been a very popular wine. Serve it slightly cool or at room temperature in a generous glass. It pairs perfectly with cheeses or chocolate cake. Once opened, it will stay fresh for up to six weeks, so you have plenty of time to enjoy.

Laid-back, rather complex aromas of black raspberry, maple syrup and golden raisins seem midway between ruby and tawny. Smooth, nicely concentrated and rich; the maple syrup note repeats in the mouth but is complemented by fresh berry flavors. Finishes slightly fiery but long, with a suggestion of raisin.
Well-balanced and offering some of the complexity associated with mature vi ntage port, spicy and cherry-like with a hint of vanilla, with velvety tann ins and firm structure.
