Single Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Midbar winery. Cabernet Sauvignon 2019. From the Israel Negev heights area, a desert wine at altitude of 800 meters.
Very young, aggressive. The fruit is the drive of the wine and its balanced nice. A food wine that supports the dish with its spicy(mild) notes. Dark purple color.
I will open the next one in a few years to see the development

Jasper Upper Galilee Negev Chardonnay Blend 2015

Binyamina winery, Jasper 2015. The Jasper demonstrates a novel and harmonious blend of Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc grapes, harvested in vineyards in the Upper Galilee, with the addition of Viognier grapes originating in a tiny but superb vineyard located in the northern Negev.
The wine shows strong structure mineral, perfume and long finish.

Nahal Revivim

Rota Red Blend 2010

Small production giving love and care to each bottle. Huge clove and turmeric smells a bit stronger then the taste but still very well made, full enough to drink alone but even better with a good hot meal. — 6 years ago

La Terra Promessa

Rubino Riserva Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Blend 2011

Bright ruby in color with a wide pinkish rim.

Nice nose of wild flowers, blueberries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, red candy, smoke, chocolates, mocha, dark coffee and peppercorn.

Medium bodied with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, leather, smoke, chocolates, mocha, bell pepper and vegetables.

Nice length on the finish with soft tannins and black pepper.

This Israeli blend is drinking very nicely now, with great balance and interesting complexity.
A red wine with a new world feel, a soft mouthfeel and nice elegance.
I had it a year ago and it is much better now.

Needs 2 hours to open up properly.

An unfiltered blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. Aged for 36 months in French oak barrels.

13.5% alcohol by volume.

Yatir winery.
Yatir Creek 2015, a blend of Syrah, Tanant and Malbec. An interesting blend based on Syrah. Thick, purple color. Cherries and plum hints on the nose. Balanced, tanins already soft. Was a good companion to the wintery lunch we had.

Pinot Noir 2018

my first ever pinot noir.
not from full on cold climate but from the Israeli negev desert(hot days and cold nights)

nothing to compare to so I'm not very confident reviewing.

100% pinot noir

14.4% abv

red fruit with leather and barnyard hints 👃

medium body.
high acidity.

tart and fruity with firm but light tannins 👄

long 🎯 that lingers on.

paired well with big varaiety brunch buffet.

krembo - sweet Israeli mass produced dessert made of industrial whipped cream, biscuit and 'chocolate' coat made it jammy and delicious.

great vfm (98 nis)

let's have some burgundy pinot and think it all through please.
