Or Haganuz Winery Namura Special Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014, Israel

This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Israel. Rich, extracted and spicy. Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, cooked cherries, dried figs, tobacco, Mediterranean spices, cedar, vanilla, licorice, cloves, vegetables, herbs, coffee, cola, pencil lead and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.

This 7 year old is good right out of the bottle. Peaking now and will be good in the next 3 years. Tasty by itself or with food.

Nice to see how it evolves with airtime. Right out of the bottle it is very much in a Napa Cabernet style, but it gets much earthier with air, and changes into an Old World style wine (2 hours).

Tangy and interesting enough to drink by itself. Just Delicious.

Aged in French Oak barrels for 24 months. Kosher and vegan. A small production of only 4,000 bottles.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

93 points.

$60.
