Douro, Portugal.....
Port Vintages results from exceptionally good crops from a single year, referred as “Classical Years” due to the high quality grapes obtained in ideal climate conditions.
After 2 years in oak barrels, Vintage Port wines are bottled in our cellars in Vila Nova de Gaia, in the Douro riverside. The Vintage improves and ages in the bottle for decades, and should be kept horizontally, in a dark, dry aired place, enhancing its true character throughout the times.
Vintage Port should be drunk with a minimum of 8 years old, but it can be appreciated with more than 50.
When recent, Vintage Port is intense, with an impressive deep purple color and reveals strong aromas of berries (especially, raspberries and blackberries), with firm tannins and a balanced structure. With age, it becomes smoother, but more elegant and complex, acquiring softer colors, distinctive aromas and body.
As Vintage Port Wines throw deposit, the bottle should be kept upright for a few hours before decanting. It is perfect served with strong cheese, especially blue ones.
The calem 2011 Vintage Port seems more reserved on the nose, with broody blackberry, fig and ashen aromas that are well defined, but more masculine than I expected. The aromatics are a little aloof, but I actually enjoy that. The palate is silky smooth and sensual, with slightly lower acidity than its peers, but it is very focused and harmonious. Velvety smooth with copious dates and cassis towards the finish.
