Tokara Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Tokara Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 4 ½ Stars 2019 Platter’s South African Wine Guide

Tasting Notes

6/19/20
On opening this starts off a little tight but with ample aeration this unfolds nicely revealing notes red currant and darker cassis fruit with some graphite and a touch of tobacco spice aromatically. Medium fuller bodied this has an engaging juiciness to the fruit with its firmer tannins just now starting to harmonize and mess into the fruit, giving nice structural support as well as adding some oak spice. As it opens up it gains mid palate flesh while still maintaining a sense of elegance and refinement. Finishing dry with good persistence this should show impressively over the next 2-3 years.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

4 ½ Stars 2019 Platter’s South African Wine Guide
Always serious & sturdily built 15 (93 pt), with a dash of merlot, lively, juicy & bright, elegant yet with ample cassis & graphite core, to which 25% new French oak, 18 months, adds lovely spice & structure. Improves on 14.



Winemaker Notes

This wine has a beautiful garnet color. There are berry aromas of cassis, red currant and blueberries on the nose. There are underlying notes of cocoa, fresh herbs and tobacco spice. The palate is packed with sweet berry fruit, flavors of dark chocolate and briary notes with hints of dried herbs on the finish. The mid-palate is intense leading to a dry textured finish.
