Yarden 2T Tinto Cão Touriga Nacional Blend 2020

I was supremely surprised with this one…I would have paid twice the 129 NIS I paid in a wine bar for this. I have to find it in stores now. — a month ago

Big score!

Domaine du Castel

Grand Vin Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

From a magnum bottle.
The cork was challenging, too dry and crumbled on its way out....
A very powerful nose and a full body, tasty, exceptional balanced wine is experienced.

Carmel Winery

Mediterranean Red Blend 2021


Purple in color with a wide reddish/ purple rim.

Sweet nose with red fruits, spices, light oak and chocolates.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, currants, plums, cherries, light oak, dark coffee, pencil lead, earth, tobacco leaf, herbs, light vegetables and peppercorn.

Spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very young red blend from Israel. Easy drinking right out of the bottle, and a nice sipping wine.

Fruit forward and interesting. Feels like a Cotes du Rhône red.

Would be nice to revisit it in a couple of years.

I paired it with cheeses, nuts and fresh berries.

A very unique blend of Caladoc, Carignan, Argaman, Grenache, Petit Verdot and Syrah. Aged for 8 months. Kosher and not Mevushal.

14% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Yarden Mount Hermon Red Blend 2022

This wine is medium dark in the glass. It has a nose which puts ripe fruit up front, with cherry, raspberry and red currant dominating. Some spice rack is present, but oaky notes are not overwhelming here. Earthiness comes on in a co-starring role, however. Red fruit is the leader on the palate, too. There is a bit more oak influence in the flavor profile, but not to a great degree. Earth and mineral notes support the fresh, fruity aspect of the wine. Tannins are medium firm and the wine is very tasty and drinkable. — 7 months ago

Gilgal Galilee Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

This is a very dark wine, almost no light gets through a glassful of it. On the nose there is a complex set of aromas. Dark fruit - blackberry, cassis, blueberry - are met with savory support from the oak. Clove, baseball glove, tobacco, earth and black pepper all play a role in the sniff. The palate is a real discovery - as dark as you like it, with firm tannins and a long finish. In California terms, the shadings are a little more like Paso than Napa - a bit rambunctious and chalky as opposed to silky and demure. In fact, the wine could have convinced me that it was a Syrah, not a Cab, had I been blind tasting it. It’s a wonderful wine that screams for a big, beautiful steak to go with it. — 7 months ago
