Glen Carlou Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Cabernet Sauvignon may be king but he is not the perfect monarch. Bordeaux’s rise to the most classic and renowned wine region was certainly not built on Cabernet alone and for many years even included Shiraz.

Tasting Notes

A bold example of this noble variety, showing layers of ripe blackcurrant cassis, red berry and bell pepper undertones, with hints of cedar and tobacco spice.

 

A well balanced wine with copious amounts of fruit, a smooth and complex finish.

 

There is no mistaking Cabernet’s Blackcurrant scent or the ability to produce wines of great longevity. Like many monarchs, Cabernet is thick-skinned, providing all the character of colour, tannin and aroma.
