Seahorse Winery Hemingway 2014 Judea Hills, Israel

image

My Rating 91 Points. 
Price $35.

Here is another great wine from Israel.

Inky in color with a deep purple rim.

Great nose of smoke, blackberries, blueberries, plums, cherries, earth, oak, cloves, licorice, mint, cocoa and black pepper.

Dry and fruity on the palate with cherries, blueberries, plums, oak, vanilla, licorice, chocolate and black pepper.

Long finish with soft tannins, peppercorn and bitter almonds.

This is a great blend of 66% Petite Syrah, 17% Cabernet Sauvignon and 17% Syrah.
Enjoyed it by itself, but would be great with a big hearty steak.

Very young, still, and needs five years to fully mature, maybe even longer, but already enjoyable. To me, this was the best one, so far, out of this winery that I tried.

Aged for 16 months in American and French oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
