Flam Winery Classico 2016, Judean Hills, Israel

This Israeli Cabernet Sauvignon based blend, is always enjoyable. Nicely balanced with mild complexity and a soft mouthfeel. Shows black and red fruits, vegetables, earth, wood, cloves, chocolates, spices and peppercorn.

Tangy finish with soft tannins.

Needs 90 minutes to open up properly, and will be better in a year or two.

A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, 8% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Franc. Aged for 10 months in French and American oak barrels.

I paired it with cheeses and the sunset.

14% alcohol by volume.

88 points.

$30.
