From the Stratus wine dinner — 3 months ago
This is a young Shiraz from Israel. Showing more like a young Northern Rhone Syrah.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, oak, licorice, light vegetables, light vanilla, tobacco and peppercorn.
Needs time to open up properly. I had it before and this time I gave it 4 hours to open up properly.
Fruity and dry on the palate. Spicy and interesting.
Nice length on the finish with round tannins.
Good by itself and better with food. I paired it with dried Meats.
Aged for 14 months in Oak barrels. Kosher and not Mevushal.
14% alcohol by volume.
