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 Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
