1985 Calem

Post by AHB » 13:08 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Brick red and still 90% opaque. Dusty cherries on the nose, ripe and mature. Served a little chilled this probably caused it to lead with the tannins but it has the fruit and acidity to last to its 50th birthday but this all combines to give a lovely texture. Great length. Rather a brute of a port, still so young. 91/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
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
