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 2018 (so far): Niepoort VV (1960's Bottling), Quinta do Noval Nacional 1994 and San Leonardo Very Old White (Bottled 2018)
2017 Ports of the year: Fonseca 1927 and Quinta do Noval 1927
