Shiloh Winery Secret Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Israel



#kosherwineSunday

Dark purple in color with a wide reddish rim.

Fruity on the nose with black currants, black plums, earth, oak, tobacco leaf, dark chocolates, cloves, green pepper, licorice, herbs, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, oak, spices, earth, vanilla, eucalyptus, green pepper, licorice, tobacco, chocolates, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon from Israel is very tasty, although still young.

Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel. Feels like a fruit forward Right Bank Bordeaux.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly and show itself, but good right out of the bottle too, and gets earthier as it opens up.

Would benefit from 3 years of bottle time, but already delicious.

I paired it with cheeses, nuts and dried fruits.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. Unfiltered, Kosher and Mevushal.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$50.
