Great, easily drinkable and pairing with grilled pork and bucatini amatriciana. Bright, plus acidity, tangy, apricot, unfiltered, but not funky like pheasant tears. More like a western European orange than a Georgian wine. — a month ago

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim. Very intense color.
Strong nose of black currants, sweet plums, cedar, cooked cherries, raisins, dried figs, vanilla, cloves, licorice, spices and peppercorn. Really enjoyed the nose.
Full-bodied and intense, with medium plus acidity and long fat legs.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with cooked cherries, black plums, dried fruits, oak, vanilla, licorice, alcohol, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, coffee and peppercorn.
Spicy finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a big and bold Cabernet Sauvignon based blend from Israel.
Rich and extracted. Spicy with a nice mouthfeel. Not for the faint of hearts, but I found it very tasty.
Still young and would be better in a few years.
Good right out of the bottle and better after 3 hours in the decanter. Much better with some air, so be patient.
Feels very much like a California Petite Sirah. Interesting stuff.
I had it all by itself by the pool.
A blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Cabernet Franc and 17% Malbec. Grapes were handpicked. Aged in French oak barrels for 15 months. Unfiltered. Kosher and Mevushal.
15% alcohol by volume.

Shiloh Winery Legend Fiddler 2017, Israel
Deep purple in color with a short reddish/ purplish rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, black currants, plum compote, raisins, dried fruits, oak, licorice, earth, chocolates, mocha, spices, herbs and black pepper.
Full-bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with blueberries, black currants, dried figs, cooked cherries, plums, cola, light oak, spices, vanilla, tobacco, peppercorn, espresso, dark chocolates and earth.
Medium plus on the finish with round tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a delicious Petite Sirah blend from Israel. Big, bold, rich and extracted. Fruit forward and elegant.
Showing nice complexity with a nice mouthfeel.
Nicely balanced and tasty right out of the bottle. Tannins show up after 30 minutes of airtime.
Good by itself and a great sipping wine. A good example of a pop and pour, good quality wine.
This 4 year old is drinking very nicely now, and it would be interesting to revisit it again in a couple of years.
I paired it with cheeses and crackers. Really enjoyed it with the Brie cheese.
A blend of 51% Petite Sirah, 33% Petit Verdot and 16% Shiraz. Grapes are grown in the Judean Hills region. Aged in French oak barrels for 15 months. Kosher and Mevushal. Unfiltered.

Big wine for half price on Last Bottle.
It will be awhile before I open my last 2 bottles, I should of bought more at the $50.00 price tag.
Nellcote was an uber-pricey luxury Cab that recently closed its doors, and, after extensive tasting through all the brilliant, incredibly fine-tuned Cabernets early last year, that none other than Phillip Titus (yep, THAT Phillip Titus, the legend behind CHAPPELLET and others!)
sourced from some of the most exclusive vineyards in Napa, including Beckstoffer, Broken Rock Ranch (Stags Leap), Hirondelle Estate (Stag’s Leap) and more, and made in hyper-small quantities, and sort of the classic “modern” rich Napa Cab style. — 3 days ago
A delicious dram in great company! Celebrating a phone call with a Legend, a stint on the most petty and ill informed radio program in the Scottish speaking world, oh aye, and a wee Nobel Prize for Chemistry. Congrats again Dave! #Nobel-lshill — 2 months ago
