Community Tasting Notes (2) Avg Score: 89 points

  • A second tasting left a much more positive impression. Black/purple/red. Fresh cassis. Moderate oak. Pine tree/gravel. Fine tannins. A satisfying long after taste with hints of liquorice. The alcohol burn I complained about before seems to have vanished.

  • Some "new plastic" on the nose (:-). Immediately after opening you are blown away, like taking a bite of wasabi/standing on a 747 runway: roaring cassis, sweet tannins, a bit of gravel, and the burning sensations of alcoholic heat build up and disappear quickly to leave a muted vanilla finish (contrary to most Galil Mountain wines, there must be some oak here). Later on the wine settles in, ripe cherry, cassis, with a velvet texture and more espresso, pine/anis/mint? notes. More complex, interesting than the "regular" Galil cabernets and merlots. The only thing against this wine is the alcoholic burn that fails to calm down.
