1985 Calem Vintage Port has impeccable provenance. Stored at the Calem cellars in Porto since bottling.
1985 was an outstanding vintage for port and the Calem does not disappoint. The 1985 Calem has a beautiful and intense brick red colour with nuances of tawny on the edge. The nose denotes intense and persistent aromas of red berries, black cherry alcohol and blueberry. On the palate this is drier style than most of the the English shippers. There is good mouthfeel, high acidity and resolved tannins. A little sour cherry and redcurrent makes this an interesting twist. Persistent finish. Still has ageing potential. 89/100 Very Good VWP Tasting TC May 2020 - Decanted for 5 hrs before tasting.
