Covenant Israel Wines Cabernet Sauvignon 2018, Israel
It's time for my #FridayCabernetfix. Here is tasty one from Israel.
A very pretty color of ruby with a very wide reddish/ brick rim.
Fruity nose with blueberries, blackcurrants, black plums, oak, licorice, earth, cloves, spices, light alcohol, light vanilla, coffee, light vegetables, pencil lead, tobacco and black pepper.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, cherries, tobacco leaf, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee, peppercorn, earth and light vegetables.
Spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a delicious Cabernet Sauvignon from Israel. Nicely balanced with a nice, soft mouthfeel.
Still very young and would benefit from a few years in the bottle, although it doesn't drink like a young wine at all. Very interesting and very well put together. Feels like a Bordeaux with a new world twist.
Has good potential to become a great wine in 5 to 7 years. Would be interesting to check it out again then.
Showing nice complexity after 90 minutes of airtime, and good right out of the bottle, as well.
I paired it with cheeses and crackers.
Fermented with indigenous yeast, and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. Kosher. Not Mevushal.
14.8% alcohol by volume.
$90. — 2 days ago

2017 vintage. A tasty CS, consistent vintage after vintage. Smooth, full body, on the sweet side but not too jammy. Loved by all....

This is a nice Cabernet Franc from Israel. Still young, but already enjoyable.
Big and bold with medium acidity.
Dry on the palate with wood, earth, red and black fruits, spices, peppercorn, green herbs, bell pepper, spices, espresso and tobacco leaf.
Good by itself or with food, with lots of earth notes right now.
Needs time to open up properly and better after 4 hours.
Still shows lots of green pepper notes, which will probably go away in time. Would be nice to revisit it in 3 years.
14.5% alcohol by volume. Kosher.
