This is a very nice Cabernet Sauvignon blend from Judean Hills in Israel. Showing black fruits with oak, vegetables, chocolates, earth, tobacco, light vanilla, cloves, herbs, spices and peppercorn.
Full bodied and big, with medium acidity.
Tangy finish with fine grain tannins and raspberries.
Still young and would be nice to visit it again in a couple of years. Better after a couple of hours in the decanter.
Good by itself or with food. I paired it with French brie cheese.
A blend of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Merlot and 5% Syrah. Aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. Kosher.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

Beautifully transcendent new world chardonnay, well-integrated oak. Citrus oil, fresh butter, medium finish with complexity. But the heart of this is in the mid-palate which is so eminently charming you just have to smile. — 2 days ago
Served double-blind. The color was a darker tone of gold, showing potential signs of age but seemed to be in good physical shape. On the nose, dried fruits such apricot and citrus fruits however, it was the striking note of coconut that ultimately led me to the Iberian peninsula. I figured a Rioja made in an oxidative style such as LdH Tondonia Blanco. On the palate, again with the dried fruits accompanied by nuts. This wine was balanced and had fine acid that provided the lift necessary. When the wine was revealed, I was couldn’t help but crack a smile; what a delight to try such a fantastic dry white from Portugal that, in many ways, was very energetic at 29 years young. — 12 days ago
Very Raj+Sashi in that this is pure French, summoned from New World. Very Chablis at first. With decanting and temperature White Burg appears. Both with a drop more fruit than their old world counterpoints. Very enjoyable already and I’d venture this will age beautifully for a decade+. — a day ago
Year in and year out, this is one of my favorite wines from one of my labels. A mild garnet color with thin edges. The exceedingly pleasing nose features notes of green tea, shy red cherries, and fresh herbs. Faded rose petals and raspberry crumble round things out.
I hate to use the term Burgundian to describe domestic Pinots. It’s almost always false and just plain isn’t fair. This definitely deserves the moniker. Silky smooth in the mouth with medium acidity and body. Well integrated tannins and some lively spice add to the prettiness of this.
The combination of rusticity and elegance really takes this to another level. Sly and delicate red fruit shine on the palate while the earthiness takes hold. Moist earth, dried forest, and straight up gravel. Long finish showing more spice and just a little kick of cinnamon. Spectacular stuff that really shows what Oregon Pinot is about. — 10 days ago
Produced since 1994 and named for Mt. Jefferson in the Cascade Range that is east of Cristom Vineyards and visible from their tasting room. From a blend of estate vineyard grapes, the wine is Ruby with aromas of red berries, floral and spice. On the palate flavors of fresh strawberry with tea leaves and cola notes, clean and vibrant. Fine soft tannins, long finish, carrying fruit and ending with a soft spice character. Very nice, great value!! — 9 days ago
