2009 Calem LBV

Post by AHB » 13:09 Mon 28 Mar 2016

Unfiltered. Deep red, crimson and opaque. Strawberries on the nose, floral and elevated. Aggressive entry, powerful and with dry tannins that overwhelm the fruit. Very tannic in the mid-palate, tannins which don’t really soften; strongly acidic. Needs a few more years to see how this evolves but is clearly made in a style that will benefit from cellaring. 89/100. Tasted 02-Mar-16.
Top Port in 2017 (so far): Graham Stone Terraces 2015 and Quinta do Vesuvio 1994
2016 Port of the year: Cockburn 1908
