Tokara 2003 Red (Stellenbosch)

73% Merlot, with Cabernet and Petite Verdot making up the difference, this is a finely crafted and delicious effort. Medium-bodied and creamy, the Merlot gives this wine a feminine feel, despite solid, soft tannins. Dark, extracted black fruits have some accents of forest and black olive, while leather adds to the cherry and cassis nose. Could use time to soften further, but very approachable now.
