4.5 stars "The wait is over! Tokara's near-mythical top-of-the-line wines, years in meticulous gestation, finally released: 'Red' well worth the wait too. Behind the minimalistic moniker a fine bordeaux style blend, cab in lead with merlot, petit v. 2003 classically styled (real Bordeaux does come to mind): elegant and dry, light-textured vinosity harmoniously meshed with fine grainy tannins. Sensitively oaked. Already enjoyable; great pity to over-age; possibly best by 2008" Best 2006-2008
