2002 Calem Colheita

Post by winesecretary » 17:58 Thu 18 Jun 2020

Bottled 2019

Reddish brown wine with obvious tears.

Nose of turkish delight, jamaica ginger cake, sultanas, hint of something a little hot - VA? - at first but that soon blew off.

Caressing texture in the mouth, even a hint of cake mix at first, creamed demerara sugar and butter. Then kirsch, chocolate raisins (and increasingly other chocolate covered comestibles with time) and a nice rainier cherry note.

Marmalade and chocolate on the finish, my co-consumer insisting it was lindt excellence milk chocolate

All very smooth and pleasant.

Popped and poured over dinner with a friend 17/06/20.
