Deep amber colour with high intense nose.

Positives: Its been a long time since I tasted such a beautiful complex & yet smooth Colheita. Plums, raisins, dates, nuts (macadamia, almonds & pecan), sandalwood, good acidity with a long finish.

Negatives: None.

Interesting Point: Tawnies are usually a minimum of 7 years in oak cask before bottling. This one spent 13 years.

Drink now & pair it with dark chocolates with almonds.

Tasted: 20 May 12

Top Pick. Score: 9.5/10, Value: 9.5/20, Total: 19/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 5

Reaffirms my faith in Tawny after a few disappointing tries.
A touch hot in the finish, otherwise no beefs.
Will grab another since I will probably sip this away before Christmas.

Revisit...still loving it!

A wonderful colheita at a wonderful price. This was in the same release as the Calem 10-year old tawny and this is easily the nicer of the two.
