Glen Carlou 2011 Petit Verdot blend

This wine is extremely dark red in appearance with light cured cherries and hints of tobacco and sandalwood on the nose. Juicy berries compliment the dark chocolate and slightly spicy oak flavours of this complex, full bodied wine which finishes with soft and silky tannins. Enjoy it with venison loin with a harissa crust, cumin yoghurt, dried fruit & almond couscous, or prime rib on the bone.
