Glen Carlou Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 90 CELLAR SELECTION The nose starts with a delicate aroma of minerals, black currant and spice, and on the palate, layers of anise, cracked pepper and clove add a soulful touch. Sturdy tannins and a vibrant overall fruit profile give the wine a lift, but the package is balanced and smooth. Wine Tasting Notes The color is deep purple red with a bright, youthful tinge. Aromas of nutmeg, cloves and aniseed are backed up with vanilla spice. On the palate mulberry, raspberry and herbal notes enter with a crisp acidity. The fi nish is intense with fruit driven character and a solid tannin backbone for maturation.

A warm welcome to Glen Carlou, situated in the heart of South Africa’s scenic Paarl Valley. The warm, dry summers and cold, wet winters of this area combine with an exciting variety of slopes and the riches of our soils to create unique winegrowing conditions. Glen Carlou was established in 1985 and since 2003 has been successfully owned and run by Hess Family Estates. To harness our farm’s vast winegrowing potential, our vines are meticulously selected in terms of rootstock and clone, while every variety is carefully chosen for its compatibility to the terroir. Yields are kept rigorously low, ensuring that nature’s gifts are distilled in the flavourful grapes that we harvest. And in the cellar our winemaker Arco Laarman and his team join forces with nature to create three distinctive wine ranges. Read less

Lots of nuts on the nose, some wood on the palate (not oak) and bracing acidity. Would go well with strong flavors, like a really garlicky dish.
