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 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
