Graham Beck Wines 2011 The Game Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon (Robertson) Western Cape - South Africa
Availability: BCLDB Stores
Date Tasted: July 10th, 2014
Tasting Notes: Over-delivers for the price with a uniquely South African Cabernet Sauvignon blend of smoky incense, mocha and spicy plum fruit aromas on the feminine nose. Dark berry fruit flavours come to the forefront on the palate with smoky oak and allspice notes playing a supporting role. Acid is quite fresh, keeping the mouth feel vibrant and alive, while graphite tannins help frame the fruit and add some structure. Finish is balanced, but moderate in length. Enjoy on its own or with a desert plate of dark chocolate and dried figs. Drink now-2016.
