Tel Arad Red Blend 2012

🏅 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.

Judean Hills Petit Verdot 2017

Deep purplish ruby. Beautiful nose of blue and black fruit. On the palate blueberry, blackberry, a little bell pepper. Medium plus bodied. Maybe a little too young - this will probably benefit from 2-3 years more cellaring. — 10 months ago

Recommendation from Jesse. Smoky, earthy, spicy. Needs to breathe before drinking. — 3 years ago

Yatir Creek Blend 2016

This Syrah blend from Israel is starting to drink nicely now. Showing nice complexity and feels like a blend of new and old world wine.

Dry on the palate with a nice mouthfeel.

Showing black currants, plums, cooked cherries, earth, oak, spices, licorice, peppercorn, coffee, dark chocolates, graphite and light vegetables.

I had it a year ago, and it is drinking better now. Would continue to age nicely in the next 5 years.

Needs 3 hours to open up properly and show the fruits, but very drinkable right out of the bottle.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with light appetizers.

A blend of Syrah, Tannant and Malbec. Kosher. Aged for 12 months in oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

$50.

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.
