Reviews of purchase Glen Carlou, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2009
Inky wine-red color with ruby reflections.
Lush, full-bodied wine with a rich, broad flavor with hints of black fruit, hints of mocha, licorice, sandalwood and vanilla. The finish is rich, dense, velvety.
The aroma of wine is dominated by shades of black currants and plums, surrounded by soft spicy notes of oak.
The wine will be the perfect pair of roast duck, ribs, meat dishes.
