This 9 year old Petite Sirah from Israel is drinking very nicely now. Showing nice complexity with a soft mouthfeel.
Peaking now, and will continue to drink nicely in the next 5 years.
Good right out of the bottle, but much better after a couple of hours. Alcohol is well integrated by now.
Rich, concentrated and extracted. Drinks like a high end California red.
Fruit forward, and in your face kind of wine. Not for the faint of heart.
Petite Sirah grapes were aged in oak barrels for 18 months. Kosher and not Mevushal.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

This is a delicious Cabernet Franc from Israel. Nicely balanced and good by itself or with food. Tangy, interesting, spicy and attractive. Rich and elegant.
Showing nice complexity at this point, and will age nicely in the next five to seven years.
Needs 90 minutes to open up properly, but good right out of the bottle as well. After 2 hours of airtime, more red fruits come in, and dominate both the palate and the nose.
I paired it with cheeses and crackers. Delicious.
Grapes grow in the Judean Hills region, and fermented on their own yeast. Aged for 18 months in Oak barrels. Kosher and non Mevushal.
