Graham Beck Brut Rosé 2011

APPEARANCE: Clear, light peach color with silver highlights, fine small bubble.

AROMAS: Delicate medium intense fig, red pear, vanilla powder, cardamon, whipping creme, crême fraiche, light cinnamon, slight bandaid.

PALATE: Dry, crisp medium plus acidity, seamless warm alcohol, medium minus alcohol, gentle, fine crisp pearl.

FLAVORS: intense, coating, yet sprightly red grapefruit, fig, fresh red pear, vanilla powder, cardamon, whipping creme, crême fraiche, a long light cinnamon and bitter almond finish.

VERDICT: Over eight years past harvest, Graham Beck’s 2011 rosé remains delightful, light on its feet, steely, yet delicate, complex, and dry. I could nit pick the bandaid, the oxidation, the fact it is best now.
