Graham Beck The Coffeestone Cabernet Sauvignon 2011

Alluring nuances of tilled earth, cedar wood and cigarbox combined with concentrated dark berry fruit and oak spice on the nose. Super-concentrated red and black fruit, vibrant acidity and a wonderful tannic grip. This is a full-bodied, firmly structured wine with concentrated fruit, a balanced mouth feel and a fresh after-palate typical to the Firgrove terroir from which the grapes derive.
