Eldar Winery Pinot Noir 2013 Judea Mountains, Israel

My Rating 91 Points.   

Price $25.
Nice ruby in color with a wide reddish rim and an orange hue.

Big fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, earth, green vegetables, pencil lead, tar, forest floor, peppercorn, oak, oregano, flowers, alcohol, licorice, spices and cola. Very nice complexity on the nose.

Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and gorgeous long legs.

Fruity on the palate with blackberries, sweet plums, cherries, wood, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, black pepper earth, sage, peppermint, tobacco, Indian spices, black pepper, earth and tar.

Long finish with soft, smooth tannins and raspberries.

This is a very nice Pinot Noir from Israel. Very unique and well-balanced with nice complexity.

Drinking very nicely now with a soft mouthfeel. Overripe feel on both nose and palate. A Great mouthfeel with a spicy long finish. I loved the long finish. Pretty complex and interesting.

This 100% Pinot Noir, has lots of both old world and new world notes. Reminds me a little of the Belle Glos Pinot Noir.

Good right out of the bottle and better with some airtime. Took an hour to properly open up.

A very small production of 300 bottles from a boutique Winery in the Judean mountains.
Late harvest grape picking, and aged for 14 months in all new French oak barrels.

A Delicious Pinot Noir from Israel.
Thank you, Sean, for sharing.

16% alcohol by volume.
