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 — 3 months ago
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. — 2 years ago

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

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
red fruit with leather and barnyard hints 👃
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. — a year ago
