Glen Carlou Grand Classique 2010

Paarl, Coastal Region, South AfricaOpen smoky, leather, earthy, meaty nose with fresh black cherry, cranberry, resin, peppery, barnyard aromas. Fresh, round, smooth palate with cassis, black berry, cranberry, coffee and a meaty, vanilla, cedar, orange peel undercarriage. It finishes a touch green and rustic but with fine overall balance and finesse. A big improvement over the last vintage - a return to form of what is normally a reliable buy.Tasted: 27 August 2014Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 21.00 specialty listing AB 19.00 private wine stores MB 20.00 NS 21.00 QC 19.00 Producer: Glen CarlouDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
