Calem Port, 1980

Quinta da Foz Vintage Port

This 1980 Vintage Port from Calem has outstanding provenance! This bottle has been stored at the Cale cellars on Porto since bottling until it was acquired by us earlier this year.

The 1980 Calem Quinta da Foz has a beautiful tawny colour indicating maturity. On the nose it has toffee, butterscotch, creme caramel and sweet candy. It is medium bodied and fully mature with jammy red fruit and raisins, again butterscotch notes and caramel which all follow through into a long lingering finish. Superb and ready for drinking now.

Chateau Haut Brion, 1980

Pessac Leognan 1er Grand Cru Classe

The 1980 Haut prion is a flattering, gentle, medium-bodied wine with a smoky, vanillin oakiness, round, ripe flavors, and a soft, luscious finish. It lacks some guts and richness by the standards of most Haut-Brion vintages since 1978, but, nevertheless, it is a charming, lighter-weight, forward wine that has reached its plateau of maturity.

Dao, 1980

Porta dos Cavaleiros

Caves S. Joao, established in 1920, became a dominant force in Portuguese wine making in the early 20th century with their houses Porta dos Cavaleiros in Dao and Frei Joao in Bairrada. Given the shifting trends in consumer preferences, Bairrada and Dao fell to obscurity in the 1990s when critical influence drove the demand for bigger, extracted, warmer climate wines. As in all things, however, what comes around goes around! Sure enough, 20 years later savvy consumers and food-conscious sommeliers are looking for finesse and freshness and heading back to Bairrada and Dao. Wines that when young had a vegetal character,

Eiswein , 1980

Jacob Gerhardt Neirsteiner Schlosskellerein, Auslese Eiswein

The 1980 Eiswein is a sweet dessert wine produced from grapes that have been frozen while still on the vine. The sugars and other dissolved solids do not freeze, but the water does, allowing for a more concentrated grape juice to develop.

The high residual sugar concentration give these wines great ageing properties - we tasted this bottle over two days. Served chilled from the fridge after a 2 hour decant. The colour is a mid-amber with green tinge around the rim of the glass. Oxidative notes on the nose, burnt molasses apricots, apple jam, tertiary notes and fruits. On the palate there is characteristic eiswein acidity a little'tart' bitterness.

Graham's Port, 1980

Vintage Port

Purple fading to red and finally pink at the rim. Rich blackberries on the nose along with very faint stewed strawberries. The tannins were powerful on Christmas day but mellowed some by the next evening. The blackberries carried through as a prominent flavor, but added a sourish note almost like a sour cherry. The finish starts out with a rich butter cookie note, but then quickly switches to grape stem.

Review:
With amber colour and golden hints this wine has an intense bouquet, dominated by the remarkable presence of the dried fruits with a refined touch of spices. In the mouth it is concentrated, firm and elegant. This wine of great deepness and with a noble character has an impressive and persistent finish.

Quevedo, 1980

40 Year Old Tawny port

*** 94 pts Robert Parker ***

This 40 Year Old tawny port from Quevedo... has a colour of golden amber with green hints. Huge complexity of aromas, from nuts, to sweet dried fruits and at a certain point, it smells like honeycomb. On the palate it is thick and intense, with the dried fruit coming along and it never finishes.
