#kosherwineSunday, and for Father's day, here is a beautiful red to celebrate.
Dark inky in color with a short brick/ purple rim.
Great nose of blackberries, blackcurrants, black plums, cherries, figs, vanilla, oak, eucalyptus, light alcohol, earth, leather, coke, chocolates, tobacco and herbs.
Full bodied and smooth, with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate and fruity, with blueberries, black currants, chocolates, tobacco, cedar, leather, vanilla, licorice, spices, light vegetables, pencil lead, black pepper and earth.
Medium finish with soft tannins and spices.
This is a great Cabernet blend from Israel. Showing great complexity and a smooth, soft mouthfeel.
Tasty and fruit forward, without being overwhelming. Gentle and elegant. Spicy finish makes it interesting.
Feels like a high quality Washington State Cabernet based Bordeaux blend, just to give you a reference.
I've had it before (a different vintage), but it was way too young. This 6 year old is drinking very nicely now.
A good quality wine and delicious.
Thank you Sharon, for sharing this with me.
I paired it with 3 different Brie cheese and crackers.
A blend of 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Syrah. Grapes were sourced from a north-facing plot, on Terra-Rosa soil. Aged for 18 months in French oak barrels. Kosher. Not Mevushal.
15% alcohol by volume.

Big nose. Very dry palate and tea flavors. One of our favorites — a month ago
Lightly extracted salmon pink with a tinge of golden yellow. Strawberry and herbal-mint notes in nose. Strawberry flavor with lemon, black pepper and mineral character on the finish. Blessedly dry. Mostly cab franc (according to the label). Flavorful, complex with varietal character on display. Great value. Nectarine flavor emerges after one to two hours, as does moderate astringency in finish. — 18 days ago
Ruby with berry fruit and floral spice aromas. On the palate blackberry and cherry fruit flavors with tea and licorice notes, lively acidity adding herb spices. Long finish, dry tannins that need some time, ending with bright mineral tones. Nice, but put this one in the cellar for a few years. Small production. — 16 days ago
Not fully translucent. Good spice on the nose, black pepper, eucalyptus, menthol, and some prune hidden in the background. Tannins are lush and delicate with acidity pouring down the tip of the tongue. That eucalyptus and menthol combo hits upfront on the palate with rainbow peppercorn following. There’s blackberry there and a touch of dusty dry dirt. That’s about it...lacks a bit of depth. — 24 days ago
Dry, bold, not super fruit forward, but tasty. Yummy. Would drink again. 6th and vine. — a month ago
A pale lakewater hue in the best sense.
Gives off a subtle bouquet of Riesling, pears and rolling hills, the sweetness of grass and melon. But it’s subtle.
Interesting flavor profile and tasting experience. We’ve got a light, yet lasting carbonation, and a medium reserved acidity showing restraint.
All of this working perfectly in harmony with the sweetness of asian pear, the minerality of limestone, and the sort of apricot dry quality of a brut champagne.
I really like this. — a month ago
