Director’s Reserve Red 2017, Tokara

£33.40 per bottle

About this wine

Tokara Directors Reserve Red is a Bordeaux varietal blend with a stunning depth of colour with an intense garnet centre and a ruby rim. The nose showcases complex aromas of ripe red and black fruits with hints of dried cranberry, baking spice and graphite. The wine enters the palate with incredible purity and focus. Flavours are those of dark cherries, blackberries and ripe plum skin. Sumptuous and full there is an hint of spice on the mid-palate which leads to fine, firm tannins on the finish.

Food pairing: Grilled ribeye steak served with Béarnaise sauce, and potato Dauphinoise.
