Golan Heights Winery

Yarden Galilee Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

2015 Vintage.  A beautiful CS from the Golan Heights Winery. Deep Ruby color. Pronounced nose with
aromas of mature dark cherries and wet forest floor notes. The mouthfeel is smooth and chewy and the body is full.  Flavor  is intense on the sweet side with good acidity.  The finish is long and the wine overall is balanced.
The wine is approachable now.

Tannat 2014

A very pretty color of dark ruby/ Inky with a wide reddish rim.

On the nose blueberries, plums, sweet cherries, black currants, light oak, licorice, chocolates, mocha, spices and black pepper.

Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, coffee, oak, spices, licorice, light vegetables, pencil lead, peppercorn, leather, earth, coffee and tobacco.

Medium on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

I opened this Israeli Tannat yesterday, and I felt like it is not there yet, so I corked it back and left it in the fridge for a day. Today it is drinking much nicer.

Nicely balanced and tangy, with a nice mouthfeel. Showing nice complexity.

This is my first Tannat from this region. Feels like a right Bank Bordeaux. Most of the Tannats I've had before, were from South America and this one is different, interesting and unique.

This Single Vineyard is very yummy now, and will be better in the next 5 years.

Grapes are grown in the Golan Heights region at an elevation of 3,000 feet. Kosher for Passover.

14% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Yarden Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay 2011

First time trying a wine from Israel. This was pretty nice—lots of autolytic notes and it was nice to try one that was vintage dated and with some bottle age. — 5 months ago

Yarden Mount Hermon Red Blend 2018

Israeli wines that I have drunk rarely went below a certain level. Maybe this one isn’t so spectacular for four stars, but it’s very tasty. Isn’t rich - for me. I can feel and taste a vanilla, a plum and some bitter chocolate. And It’s something, I think. — 2 months ago

Yarden Merlot Yonatan Vineyard 2013

A well balanced wine - well rounded with a long finish. Slightly dry on the palate. A little crushed berry and hint of leather on the nose. A solid Merlot - drinking well and kosher for Passover! — 2 months ago
