    January 14, 2018 - My first Israel wine, keen to try.

    Nose is a ripe mushroom chocolate (yes that's incompatible) Bordeaux. Palate is medium body. Very long savory finish of chocolate nutty nougat.

    There's something very good about this actually. I wish I had tasted it blind. Frankly much smoother and and more wekcoming than Bordeaux, it has graceful length but none of the sharpness.

    December 31, 2016 - Nice unique Cab. Has a red fruit almost raisin hint but not in a bad way. Licorice at the top but after an hour decant it settled into a nice experience

    June 20, 2016 - Fruit compote of blackberries, plums and cherries on the nose, along with black pepper and tobacco. There’s some wildness to it along the lines of a northern Rhone syrah, and wet soil. Over time, spearmint emerges. The palate is medium-plus in body with dense, grainy tannin. Medium acididty helps cut the tannin and helps define a dense structure that achieves a lightness that the nose does not suggest. Flavors include dark cherries, blackberries, smoke, cocoa, espresso and peppermint. It’s a dark and brooding flavor profile. The finish is long and pleasant. This is still a young wine and requires at least 2-3 hours of decanting before consuming. It has a good 3 years of prime drinking ahead of it, at least. For the price, this is better than most cabernet sauvignons from any part of the globe.
