Tokara 2013 Cape Winemakers Guild Tribute Cabernet Sauvignon (Stellenbosch)

Winemaker: Miles Mossop. This is a somewhat special release, as Mossop is not only the current chairman of the CWG but also on his way out of an 18-year-long tenure at Tokara (to focus his attention on his eponymous brand). It opens with soft, seductive ripe-black fruit that are hit with good doses of vanilla, baking spice and crushed violets. The medium-weight palate offers a crushed-satin texture, as ample tannins frame the lush dark-fruit flavors. It's attractive and enticing now, but should continue to mature well through 2023.
