Glen Carlou Grand Classique 2013

Paarl, Coastal Region, South AfricaI last tasted this vintage in 2015, when it first came onto our market. I was surprised to see the 2013 now, two years further along, and suspect it has something to do with sales flow rather than cellaring strategy. The smoke and leather in this blend of cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, malbec, merlot, cabernet franc are still evident, but more pronounced with age, and the wine is now showing oxidative, OXO notes. Tannins are sticky and the spicing is five star. Drink now, either off the shelf, or in your cellar, with Asian-spiced ribs.Tasted: 05 September 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 23.00 BCLS Producer: Glen CarlouDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
