2011 Calem

Post by AHB » 08:24 Sun 18 Aug 2013

Sweet brambles and sharp blackcurrants on the nose and a lovely mineral edge. Dense and sweet fruit and a big tannic core; air releases a lovely perfume. Good dry finish. An elegant wine; an early maturer. 88-90. Drunk over 1-4 days as part of the 2011 extended tasting.
Top Ports in 2019: Niepoort VV (1960s bottling) and Quinta do Noval Nacional 2017
Top Ports in 2020 (so far): Croft 1945 and Niepoort VV (1960s bottling)
