Ultimate Beverage Challenge 87 points - Powerful bouquet of blueberry, baked cherries along with fantastic notes of dried mango. In the mouth, it has a honeyed texture and strong flavors of baked cherries. The finish is well structured, semisweet and punctuated with blueberry.” (Jun 2013)

Special Reserve is a "vintage character" port, intended to reflect a shipperís Vintage Port style. Vintage Character ports are matured before release and ready to enjoy when bottled, without the need for decanting. These offer the taste of a vintage port with about 5 years of bottle age. Vintage character ports are a blend of fine ruby ports from various years and vineyards, aged in large vats to retain their ruby red color and bottled ready to drink after filtration.

Cockburnís focuses much of its expertise on maintaining the quality of Special Reserve. Special Reserve fruit is picked at the peak of ripeness from single varietal vineyards in the finest vineyard areas. Slightly longer fermentation produces a less sweet finish, highlighting fruit and tannin structure, known as "grip." A higher percentage of older wines in the Special Reserve blend creates a complex, layered wine that is the Cockburnís signature style. Only the five best port grapes are used in Special Reserve: Touriga Nacional, Touriga Francesa, Tint„ C„o, Tinta Roriz and Tinta Barroca.
