  • 2006 Tokara Director’s Reserve – South Africa, Coastal Region, Stellenbosch (11/4/2018)
    WIML93

    Tasted non-blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about two hours.

    Garnet to dark garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of thistle, boysenberry, violets and pepper. Flavors of cassis, boysenberry and plum. Medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. Drink or hold.

    Bottled under screw cap. 12 years old. Hasn’t suffered at all due to the screw cap in my opinion. (93 points)

  • 2006 Tokara Director’s Reserve – South Africa, Coastal Region, Stellenbosch (3/12/2017)
    WIML93

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about 90 minutes.

    Dark garnet to purple color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Beautiful nose that reminds me of a Lynch Bages. Herbs du Provence, pepper, plum and a mix of dark fruits. Flavors of black berries, plums and raspberries. medium acidity, medium tannin, full bodied. This is a $25.00 USD bottle of wine that is drinking way above it’s pay grade. Another example of there are not great wines, only great bottles. Drink or hold. Amazing. Outstanding almost.

    NOTE: this is one of two bottles we purchased at the winery in South Africa and brought back with us so provenance was impeccable. (93 points)
