This is a very nice Syrah from Israel. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel and nice complexity.
Showing lots of fruits with earth and vegetable notes. Feels very much like a young Northern Rhone.
Still young and needs time to mature, but already very nice. Showing lots of potential. In the next 7 to 10 years, this can get to 93-94 points with proper cellaring.
This Single Vineyard needs time to open up. I gave it 3 hours, and that’s when it starts to shine.
A good quality wine that can last for many years.
Good by itself and with food. I paired it with cheeses and crackers. Went very nicely with the brie cheese.
