Seahorse Winery Take Two Zinfandel Petite Syrah 2014 Judea Hills, Israel

image

My Rating 82 Points.
Price $25.

Dark ruby in color with a red rim.

Tart on the nose with cherry juice, strawberries, vanilla, oak, licorice and yeast?

Fruity and bone dry on the palate with cherries, metals, earth and black pepper.

Medium-bodied with high acidity.

Long finish with soft tannins and black pepper.

Drinking nicely now, but needs an additional 2 years in the bottle. I had the opportunity to have it directly from the barrel, so no bottle aging yet.

A blend of 80% Zinfandel and 20% Petite Sirah, all organic grapes.

Aged for 12 months in American oak barrels (which is unique for this wine region).

14.5% alcohol by volume.
