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 excellent balance.
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.
