I love it. A rich and complex wine. The nose and the palate are full of fruits: an apple, a pear, a pineapple. Maybe some more, but I can’t recognize, it’s too much for me. It’s a delicious chardonnay. A short citrus final finishes it gently. — 6 days ago
was handed this bottle by the host of a wine tasting.
we tasted wines from a small boutique winery up north of israel. wasn't really impressive.
this bottle is not related though.
it seems that this was privately bottled in chilag winery by some gang calling themselves 'parlament'(sic)
100% Cabernet sauvignon hand picked in upper Galilee.
one month fermenting on the peels. then a few more weeks soaking and finished 13 months in old and new french oak barrels.
dark ruby red with orange-y rim. 👀
ripe black and red cherries, blueberries, cranberry sauce, dust, wet soil, tobbaco, mint, allspice and white pepper. some tar mixed with brown sugar rounding up the 👃
tart all round with the tar and dust leading, the black fruit running close by and light seasoning somewhere behind matched by some forest funk 👄
a tiny bit syrupi
very very long 🎯
tannins are strong and lips are dried. pleasent when the wine is colder and a bit too much hotter.
balanced and super interesting because of aging, but not exceptional.
amazing vfm, got it for free
homemade 🐔mratballs with 🥕and peas in 🍅sauce worked well with it.
i paired it also with crackers, homemade labaneh cheese(yogurt and a little salt dripping the liquid for a couple of days) , olive oil & zaatar for science sake. and as i guessed they interrupt each other badly.
fun wine all in whole. — 8 days ago
