A well structured wine, excellent vfm. Strong dark red color, good nose of fruits and earth. Ripeness of the grape is balanced nice with acidity. You want to take the next sip..... — 2 months ago
Loved this very drinkable blend of red goodness! Sold out fast - July 2020 bottle of the month. From one of Coopers Hawk’s somms, the varietals include: “Bold and dark, Cabernet Sauvignon from the Unites States serves as the framework for this blend. This, along with other dark grapes like Petit Verdot, Malbec, Merlot, and Zinfandel comprise 78% of the blend. The French grapes all come from the warm Rhône Valley, which is known for producing rich, spicy wines. A combination of Syrah, Grenache, and Marselan complete the blend at 22%.” — 3 months ago

Tasty rose for 15 USD. When it was very chilled it smelled very yeasty but as it warmed up it gave over to a purple grape and violet nose. The flavor is semi sweet, soft, and tastes of candied red fruits and watermelon. — 5 months ago

Binyamina Wines Ha'Shomer Marselan Reserve 2017, Galilee, Israel
Dark ruby in color with a wide and cloudy reddish rim.
Strong nose of blueberries, black currants, plums, licorice, oak, spices, dark coffee, black pepper, earth, herbs, light alcohol, wet leaves and black tea.
Medium plus in body with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, coffee, oak, earth, tobacco leaf, green vegetables, spices, black tea, bitter herbs and black pepper.
Medium plus on the finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.
This is a nice surprise coming from Israel. This Marselan is earthy and interesting. Very tangy, spicy and engaging. The aromatic nose makes it fun to smell on for a while.
Needs an hour to open up properly to bring out the tannins, and show good structure. Much better after 3 hours of airtime, so be patient. Would be interesting to see how it evolves in the next couple of years.
The Marselan grape variety is a cross between Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache, and I like both. Interesting stuff.
Good by itself and better with food. I paired it with Brie cheese and olives. Would pair nicely with game meats or lamb dishes.
100% Marselan grapes from the Galilee region, were aged in French oak barrels for 16 months. Kosher. Mevushal.
14.5% alcohol by volume.
