1997 Calem

Post by AHB » 20:44 Tue 31 Oct 2017

Tasted at the Confraria dinner. Deep red colour, smelling of soft bruised fruit. A lovely texture with big tannins in the cherry fruit. The tannins are ripe and firm, really nice. A much burlier and less elegant wine than the Ferreira tasted alongside. 90/100. 22-Jun-17. Decanted 12 hours.
