Blend: 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 8% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Franc, 2% Petit Verdot
This wine follows the "classic"
style blends that Glen Carlou has been
making from their first vintage in
1989. The 2003 vintage is a big,
rich wine with fruit forward
character and ripe tannins.
Deep ruby red with a purple tinge
in color with aromas of cloves,
sandalwood, and fresh cassis
berries, and dark brambly fruit,
this wine has ripe tannins with
intense fruit reminiscent of black
berries. The wine finishes long
and full in the mouth with
The classic wine structure will
allow the wine to mature well for
at least 10 years, but it is also
ideal to drink now with rich food
and red meat dishes.
