The aromas are that of fresh red and black berries. There is a hint of fresh mint, cigar box and dark cocoa underlying the concentrated fruit notes. The entry of the wine onto the palate is full and rich. With deep concentrated fruits such as fresh ripe prunes, blackberries, crème de cassis and mulberries.
The tannins of the wine are robust yet yielding. This all leads to a dry textured finish with
a lingering savoury note.
This wine drinks well now but will benefit from ageing until 2024.
This wine is a blend of 92% Cabernet Sauvignon, 4% Merlot and 4% Cabernet franc. The grapes originated from TOKARA’s premium vineyards on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain just outside of Stellenbosch.
