15% petit verdot
both coming from the vineyards next to the hotel in Jerusalem surrounding mountains
10% merlot from golan heights
14 months in french oak.

Fruity, light, glorious aroma — 6 months ago
This 4 year old Petit Verdot from Israel is drinking very nicely now. Big and bold with medium acidity.
Dry and very fruity on the palate with black fruits, wood, vanilla, licorice, spices, earth, tobacco, peppercorn, cloves, pencil lead, dark coffee and dark chocolates.
Showing nice complexity with a great mouthfeel. Well balanced and good by itself or with food.
Would be very nice to pair it with a nice juicy burger and fries. I had it all by itself.
100% Petit verdot grapes were aged for 18 months in French Oak barrels. Kosher.
14.3% alcohol by volume.
