Nana Estate Winery Cassiopeia 2019, Israel





Dark purple in color with a purplish rim.

Strong nose of cooked blackberries, sweet plums, licorice, light cedar, vanilla, spices, espresso, chocolates and tobacco.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, cooked
plums, dried figs, spices, black pepper, chocolates, mocha, tobacco leaf and light earth.

Long finish with fine grained tannins, peppercorn and cherries.

This is a very tasty Syrah blend from Israel. Easy drinking and smooth. Nicely balanced with nice complexity.

Fruit forward and rich. Extracted, yet elegant. Spicy finish makes it interesting.

Good right out of the bottle and better with airtime. I gave it a couple of hours in a decanter to open up properly.

Really tasty by itself as a sipping wine. Bold and beautiful. Tangy and interesting.

I paired it with cheeses and olives.

A blend of 85% Syrah, 12% Petite Sirah and 3% Petit verdot. Grapes are grown in the desert. Aged in French oak barrels for 14 months. Kosher and not Mevushal.

14.6% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$42.
