I tasted this late bottled vintage 2007 port at Cálem in Porto, Portugal.

Colour is a deep purple that could go right into black.

The aroma have a weak fruit to it.

The taste is dry with a fresh fruit to it. A weak dried fruit to the after taste, no other notes to it. It needs more time on the bottle. Cálem LBV wines are semi filtered so it can age and will get better with time.

Overall rating 84 / 100

To learn more about Cálem, read my article from visiting the wine producer: Visiting Calem in Porto

I tasted this 3 to 4 year old ruby port at Cálem in Porto, Portugal.

Colour is deep red with a hint of purple to it.

The alcohol dominates the fruit in the aroma.

The taste starts out with a sharp tannin and alcohol that goes into a weak fruit and some raisin in the after taste. A cheap and reasonable wine but not much of an experience.

Overall rating 84 / 100
