Cálem Port Blend Porto Vintage 2007

Member Review by ryanopaz:

1st Wood nuts with fruit of plum and raisin hidden a bit. Rich tannin with high acid it shows flavors of grape, raisin, date, anise, and black pepper. Currently the alcohol is a big factor. 3.5/5 2nd Chocolate on the nose with Candy like cherry/grape on the palate. Tasty but the finish is a bit short. 3/5 [NR]

Porto Cálem is one of the highest awareness Port Wine brands, among more than 40 others. Almost all Portuguese families know Porto Cálem, as recognized market leader in this country, especially through its product ranges Velhotes Tawny, Ruby and White. Founded in 1859, by António Alves Cálem, Porto Cálem was by this time dedicated only to wine exports to Brazil in exchange of exotic woods and by means of its own fleet.

A typical tawny colour of light red with a hint of brown. Pale in the intensity and watery around the rim. The first aroma that hits your nose is confectionary plum and spice, but with an overture of slight floral notes. Also apparent is the waft of alcohol. On the palette is a well balanced matching of acidity and sugar, this port coats your mouth with a red berry sensation and followed through with spice, almost nutmeg and Christmas spice. The length is medium but the instensity of the alcohol remains on the back of the throat. Perfect matching with a hot apple pie or summer fruits bake.

A blend of the very best wines produced in 1997 vintage, and aged in wood vessels for two years before bottling. A deep plummy purple color, with intense red fruit aromas balanced by an elegant tannic structure, deep and immature with a very long
