My Rating 94 Points.
This Friday, for my Cabernet fix I chose a wonderful wine from Israel.
Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.
On the nose, blackberries, blueberries, plums, cherries, oak, currants, licorice, earth, chocolates, light vanilla and white pepper.
Full bodied with medium plus acidity, smooth and elegant, with great legs.
Dry and fruity on the palate with cherries, currants, vanilla, licorice, tobacco, oak, cocoa, cedar, cloves and black pepper.
Long finish with big, full, firm tannins and peppercorn.
This is a great Israeli red wine. Well balanced and smooth with great complexity. Shows power and richness from nose to palate.
Not as good as the 2008 vintage, and needs some more bottle time, but still, one of the best Israeli wines I’ve had.
These 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are aged for 36 months in French oak barrels. Only 65,000 bottles were produced annually from this Winery.
This is just delicious.
