Excellent. Balanced and is very drinkable yet oaky and fuller. Remember this one. — 9 days ago
This was actually a Covenant 2014 Malbec blend - Makom B’Sonoma. — a year ago
The wine has a blend of blackberry, dried plum and other died fruits. The tannins are for structure but dissolve in the finish which lasts long enough to give spice notes of satisfaction. — 2 years ago
Pretty golden in color.
Showing Sweet lemons, honey, red apples, melons, pears, tropical fruits, pineapples, bananas and light spices.
Full bodied and syrupy with high acidity and fat legs.
This is a delicious sweet white wine from Sonoma Mountain.
Rich, thick and sweet with enough acidity for the high sugars. Showing nice complexity and a nice mouthfeel.
Could use years in the bottle to mature and get more complexity, but already delicious. If you have the patience to wait 20 years, this would be delightful, and full of complexity.

It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is tasty one from Israel.
A very pretty color of ruby with a very wide reddish/ brick rim.
Fruity nose with blueberries, blackcurrants, black plums, oak, licorice, earth, cloves, spices, light alcohol, light vanilla, coffee, light vegetables, pencil lead, tobacco and black pepper.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cherries, tobacco leaf, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, earth and light vegetables.
Spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Israel. Nicely balanced with a nice, soft mouthfeel.
Still very young and would benefit from a few years in the bottle, although it doesn't drink like a young wine at all. Very interesting and very well put together. Feels like a Bordeaux with a new world twist.
Has good potential to become a great wine in 5 to 7 years. Would be interesting to check it out again then.
Showing nice complexity after 90 minutes of airtime, and good right out of the bottle, as well.
I paired it with cheeses and crackers.
Fermented with indigenous yeast, and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. Kosher. Not Mevushal.
14.8% alcohol by volume.

Dry and fruity on the palate with plums, cherries, currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, chocolates, tobacco, coffee, peppercorn and pencil lead.
Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy pomegranates.
This is a great, Petit Verdot based, red blend from Sonoma County. Nicely balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up, with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.
Drinking nicely now, and will age nicely in the next 5 years. I had it a year ago and it is drinking better now.

Generally speaking, I am not a fan of Lodi Zinfandel. I find the wines to be way too over the top way to raisiny and way to Jamm-y. This wine is the opposite of that. This wine has a lot of restraint (ABV 14.5)!and a beautiful elegance to it. Red and blue Berries are both represented here I think the blueberries are the dominant flavor along with some beautiful baking spice influence.￼ there is a rawness to the spice note that make the finish very interesting. Seek this in out! — 5 months ago
