Time for my #FridayCabernetfix . Here’s a beautiful one from Israel.
Dark ruby in color with a short reddish rim.
Nice nose of black currants, blackberries, cherries, vanilla, earth, wood, vegetables, dark coffee, herbs, tobacco leaf, spices, graphite and peppercorn.
Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, earth, black tea and spices.
Long finish with fine tannins and tangy raspberries.
This Israeli Cabernet Sauvignon is always enjoyable. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel and nice complexity. Tastes like a blend of old world and new world.
Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show its tannins and complexity, but good right out of the bottle also.
Wine Enthusiasts 90 points.
This 6 year old is very tasty now, and will age nicely in the next 5 to 7 years.
Grapes are grown at a high elevation and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. Kosher for Passover.
14.5 % alcohol by volume.
