Graham Beck Coffeestone Cabernet 2006

Cedarwood and cigarbox flavours combined with rich dark berry fruit on the nose. Cassis, mulberry and spices on the palate. A full bodied, firmly structured wine with concentrated fruit, a balanced mouthfeel and a fresh after-palate typical to the Firgrove terroir from which the grapes derive.
