Judean Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2006


Dark ruby in color with a reddish brick rim.

Pretty nose and dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing plums, cooked cherries, light oak, spices, vanilla, licorice, chocolates, tobacco, herbs, wet leaves and peppercorn.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and cherries.

This 17 year old is peaking now. Soft and rich, yet elegant. A gorgeous wine.

A great sipping wine to have all by itself, and will also pair nicely with a big piece of steak.

I've had a few vintages of this Cabernet, old and young, but this one was the best so far.

A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Petit Verdot. Aged in oak barrels for 12 months. Unfiltered and kosher.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

95 points.

Judean Hills Petit Verdot 2011

Dark inky in color with a short purplish rim.

Beautiful nose of blueberries, blackberries, black currants, cherries, light vegetables, wood, light vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, caramel, peppercorn, leather, earth and bell pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cherries, oak, licorice, spices, coffee, cola, pencil lead, peppercorn, leather, earth, bell pepper, green vegetables, bitter herbs, chocolates and smoke.

Nice length on the finish with medium tannins, bitter herbs and tangy cranberries.

This is a great Israeli Petite Verdot. Well balanced, interesting and complex. Shows a great mouthfeel with a nice tangy ending. As it opens up it becomes earthier with more vegetables notes.

Needed 4 hours in a decanter to show some tannins.

It's not very often that I get to enjoy a Petite Verdot single varietal that much.

Made with 100% Petite Verdot grapes. Aged for 12 months in Oak barrels and lightly filtered before bottling.

Kosher wine (not Mevushal).

14.5% alcohol by volume.

This is a tasty Syrah from the south of Israel. Easy drinking and good by itself or with food.

Dark purple in color with a purplish rim.

Full bodied with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate and fruit forward.

Showing black fruits with oak, licorice, spices, tobacco, coffee and earth.

A new world Syrah in style. Nice and engaging.

I've had a few different vintages of this wine, and the blend changes through the vintages.

A blend of 77% Syrah, 16% Tannant and 7% Malbec. Aged in large oak barrels for 12 months. Kosher and not Mevushal.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

Judean Hills Syrah Blend 2016

This inky wine’s nose is a strong blast of dark fruit, and I do mean dark. There is spice and oak, along with a strong element of forest floor, perhaps that of the Yatir Forest. The palate is fruit forward, dark fruit forward. The Syrah takes the lead, but the Tannat certainly makes itself known. There is a grapey note in the background which reminds me of Lambrusco a bit. The tannins are firm, but not as forceful as I expected.

🏅 Rating: 89/100 (3,9🌟)

Hot climate southern wine in style. Concentrated, dense, rich, heavy full body. Plenty of ripe black fruits, spices: black pepper, game and bit of smoke. Some reminiscent of Northern Rhone.

Syrah dominant blend with little Mourvedre.

High altitude single vineyard Yatir Forest. Aged 12 months in large oak barrels (foudres)

High quality Israel wine, serious wine making. On the edge between Old and New World.
