image

My Rating 95 Points.    
Price $45.

Brown / orange in color.

Sweet on the nose with cherries, green pepper, oak, vanilla, blackberries, blueberries, cherries and Mediterranean spices.

Full bodied, smooth, buttery and creamy with nice legs.

Sweet on the palate with cherries, black currants, wood, sherry, vanilla and earth with a long sweet finish.

What a great Vintage Port from Israel this is. Balanced, smooth and enjoyable. A great dessert wine that is not too sweet, but just right.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Shiraz.
Aged for 48 months in oak barrels.

17.5% alcohol by volume.
