Re: 1970 Calem Foz

CáF70, decanted 14:30. Dark dark red, 70% opaque. Softer and sweeter than the Cá70, and brighter too, perhaps because of the hint f spearmint. Fabulous, though I preferred the Cá.

Re: 1970 Calem

Cá70, decanted 14:30. Dark dark red, 60% opaque. Big chocolatey Port, with dark cherries. But the heft and length are particularly splendid: solid Port for solid people. Excellent.

Re: 1966 Calem Foz

Cá66, decanted 14:15. Fantastic. Massive and long, with white pepper, and a deep variety of flavours. Huge, but slightly dry. At its peak, and a splendid peak.

CáF58 , decanted 15:30. Dark red, 50% opaque. Nose of dark cherries. Palate of fruit indistinct but black, with sweetness, tobacco, leather. Very ver long.

Re: 1935 Calem

Cá35, decanted 15:30. The colour not good 25% opaque, red-orange. Nose over-mature, soft and sweet. No distinct fruit. But the palate was lovely: soft, over-mature, hint of barley sugar. Bright and ethereal, almost refreshing, and extremely long. Very good, and massively outperforming its colour.
