Yarden Galilee Syrah 2012

We had the 2012 Vintage on 10/23-24/22. This full bodied, fruit forward Syrah has a long finish. Dark fruit and pepper on the bouquet. Blackberry, boysenberry, plum and vanilla on the palate. 15% ABV. Performance exceeds its price — 3 months ago

Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

#KosherWineSunday

This is a delicious, yet young, Cabernet Sauvignon from Israel.

Full bodied and spicy.

Dry on the palate with nice complexity.

Showing black fruits with tobacco leaf, earth, oak, licorice, light vanilla, eucalyptus, black pepper and pencil lead.

Nicely balanced, and fruit forward with a nice mouthfeel.

Good by itself or with food, and drinks like a Left Bank Bordeaux.

Needs a couple of hours to open up properly, and will continue to age nicely in the next 7 years.

A blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon with Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels. Kosher and not Mevushal.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$70.

Garage de Papa Rouge Red Blend 2020

This is third or fourth vintage or this wine that I’ve tried and it keeps getting better. The passion project or top-Israeli winemaker Ido Lewinsohn, this is a blend of 90% Syrah and 0% Petite Syrah. I would like to say Northern Rhône (maybe St Joseph! In style, but actually this is as close as it gets to giving a sense of place for an Israeli wine. Plum, garrigue and some baking spice, maybe cardamom. Vibrant acidity. This will get better with age. Really excellent stuff. — 7 months ago
