1977 Calem

Post by AHB » 22:41 Sat 16 Aug 2014

Sealed with a cork branded ""Calem Vintage 1977 Quinta do Foz"", bottled by the Wine Society.

Deep burnished red, 70% opaque. Slight VA on the nose of fresh crushed herbs. Good density on the palate, but the palate is marred by the VA. Under the VA is mature fruit and dark chocolate. Very hot on the aftertaste, burning the throat, which slowly fades to give a gentle green coffee finish. Pleasant port, but there are many better bottles. 83/100. Drunk 16-Aug-14. Decanted 3 hours.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
