This is a beautiful wine. If only I hadn’t been such a knucklehead and put it in the freezer four nights ago only to forget about it. Huge surprise that after such abuse it was delicious and seemed no worse for wear. Replete with notes of honey, toast, bay and mint, with a rich and luscious mouthfeel and a pleasing streak of acidity. Texturally and aromatically, like a bright and tart Rhone white. — 4 days ago
If this is petit, they’re Gran Crus will be off the hook. Like Le mensil, lemons, stones, a little bit of candy on the finish mixed with salinity. Pith. — 3 days ago
This is a very enjoyable Petit Verdot from Israel.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cooked cherries, vanilla, licorice, vinaigrette, cloves, bitter herbs, spices, earth, wood, wet leaves, dark chocolates, coffee and peppercorn.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and herbs.
Good right out of the bottle, but has a great nose after 3 hours of airtime.
Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel. This Single Vineyard has a nice grip on the mouthfeel, which is very enjoyable.
Still drinking nicely, but showing the beginning of the end, so drink up.
100% Petit Verdot grapes from the Judean Hills. Kosher and not Mevushal.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Tar, cedar, black currant and maybe a little bit of red currant too. It's a very nice, noble nose. The palate is well designed. A strong acid drive, a good width with a nice matter on the side, a bit of a grain which expands in the rear to create a nice wall of tannins which are now well integrated. The finish shows a nice blossoming fruit, these fine tannins too, creating some asperities, a nice, noble bitter note appears at the very end. It's a bit under the 2 previous vintages I tasted but it's a very good wine for the vintage. — 15 hours ago
Sempre Vive Petit Verdot is delicious. The dark fruits burst on the palette and the finish stays with you. Highly recommend for special occasions or just to forget about 2020! — 11 days ago
