From a magnum bottle.
The cork was challenging, too dry and crumbled on its way out....
A very powerful nose and a full body, tasty, exceptional balanced wine is experienced. — 23 days ago
This is a very dark wine, almost no light gets through a glassful of it. On the nose there is a complex set of aromas. Dark fruit - blackberry, cassis, blueberry - are met with savory support from the oak. Clove, baseball glove, tobacco, earth and black pepper all play a role in the sniff. The palate is a real discovery - as dark as you like it, with firm tannins and a long finish. In California terms, the shadings are a little more like Paso than Napa - a bit rambunctious and chalky as opposed to silky and demure. In fact, the wine could have convinced me that it was a Syrah, not a Cab, had I been blind tasting it. It’s a wonderful wine that screams for a big, beautiful steak to go with it. — 2 months ago

This wine is medium dark in the glass. It has a nose which puts ripe fruit up front, with cherry, raspberry and red currant dominating. Some spice rack is present, but oaky notes are not overwhelming here. Earthiness comes on in a co-starring role, however. Red fruit is the leader on the palate, too. There is a bit more oak influence in the flavor profile, but not to a great degree. Earth and mineral notes support the fresh, fruity aspect of the wine. Tannins are medium firm and the wine is very tasty and drinkable. — 2 months ago
Third tasting and it reveals itself at its peak in a style that recalls Cornas or a first-class Saint-Joseph: Smoked bacon, animal, crunchy and powerful. Gourmet sensation of residual sugar. Caramel, roasting. Long and refined finish with drying and persistent tannins. Magnificent price/pleasure ratio. 2016 is perfectly balanced.
Troisième dégustation et il se révèle à son apogée dans un style qui rappelle Cornas ou un Saint-Joseph de première classe:
Lard fumé, animal, croquant et puissant. Sensation gourmande de sucre résiduel. Caramel, torréfaction. Finale longue et raffiné e aux tanins asséchants et persistants. Magnifique rapport prix/plaisir. 2016 est parfaitement à l’équilibre. — 3 months ago
The 2021 Yarden Chardonnay has a lemony nose with orange peel and pear notes, and minerality that beats out butter. It smells almost unoaked. On the palate, the citrus is out front again, with an even stronger lean into the minerals. Acidity is fresh and zesty. Oak is not a problem in this very enjoyable wine. — 2 months ago

This Israeli Sauvignon Blanc is nicely balanced and enjoyable by itself. Easy drinking, tangy and a little bit spicy. Fresh and fruit forward.
I've had a few vintages of this Sauvignon Blanc before, and it is very consistent.
A great party wine, and good for the pool too.
