Old Vine Carignan 2016

#kosherwineSunday

This 6 year old Carignan from Israel is drinking very nicely now. Tangy and interesting.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity and long legs.

Showing red fruits with wood, earth, spices, tobacco, chocolates, coffee and peppercorn.

Dry on the palate with a soft mouthfeel, and a nice aromatic nose.

Tangy finish with fine grained tannins and cranberries.

Good right out of the bottle, and better after an hour of airtime.

I've had this vintage before, and this time did not decant it, but I gave it a light chill.

Paired nicely with the mushroom Brie cheese.

Kosher and not Mevushal.

13% alcohol by volume.

90 points.

$35.

This is a unique Syrah based blend from Israel. Nicely balanced and still young. Earthy and stinky, in a good way. Feels like a Northern Rhône Syrah.

This 4 year old is starting to drink nicely now, and will continue to age nicely in the next 7 years.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly, but good right out of the bottle too.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with dried meats.

Good Rhône Valley style wine from the Galil. Nothing extraordinary, but a Kosher wine that actually tastes like a non-Kosher Mediterranean wine is hard to find. A great Seder choice. — a month ago
