Glen Carlou Grand Classique 2016

Paarl, Coastal Region, South AfricaFrom Paarl, this Bx inspired blend blends Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot, Petit Verdot, all fermented in stainless, and aged in French barrels (30% new) separately for 18 months before being blended. Super old school, thick with wood, vanilla, cedar, bedding ripe cherry, raspberry jam, leather, baking spices, and ample dried florals. Tannins are chewy, and the finish is very warming, more so than 14.5 degrees would suggest. This certainly welcomes airtime before drinking, and then partnering with a braai of grilled meats.Tasted: 12 June 2020Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 23.00 BCLS Producer: Glen CarlouDistributors: International Cellars Inc.
