Calem Vintage Port 1997, Portugal

Porto Cálem is a famous Port producer founded in 1859 by António Alves Cálem in the Douro Valley, Portugal.

"Fairly dark colored port - eggplant purple at the center becoming a bright burgundy toward the rim. The nose has a warm, roasty quality to it with prominent scents of raspberries, blueberries, and grape jelly. Sweet fruit on the palate - lots of raspberry and blueberry coming across strongly again; there's an almost candied quality to it, with subtle hints of tar and a dash of pepper. Medium bodied with mild tannins and a mid-range length of finish w/ a touch of a medicinal edge to it - well balanced and very tasty. Doesn't have the heavyweight structure for long aging, but a straightforwardly enjoyable port that will probably be at it's best in the shorter term."

88/100 points, tasted April 2008 (USA)

"Ruby red in color with thick tears, dried fruit in the nose, plums, cranberries, raisins, dark chocolate, blackberries in the aftertaste, violets with a pepper, and a touch of vanilla, firm tannins provide some roughness even after decanting twice, but what a complex wine and what class for this price."

90/100 points, Cellar Tracker, January 2014
