I was supremely surprised with this one…I would have paid twice the 129 NIS I paid in a wine bar for this. I have to find it in stores now. — 4 months ago

Big score!

Golan Heights Winery

Gilgal Galilee Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Loved this one. Great for a rainy cold day. Paired with mujadara and Jerusalem mix chicken. Big wine with blackberry, dark cherry and blueberry. Oaky tannins keep it from being too sweet. Would buy this again in a heartbeat!! — a month ago

Carmel Winery

Mediterranean Red Blend 2021


Purple in color with a wide reddish/ purple rim.

Sweet nose with red fruits, spices, light oak and chocolates.

Medium plus in body with medium acidity.

Dry on the palate with blueberries, currants, plums, cherries, light oak, dark coffee, pencil lead, earth, tobacco leaf, herbs, light vegetables and peppercorn.

Spicy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a very young red blend from Israel. Easy drinking right out of the bottle, and a nice sipping wine.

Fruit forward and interesting. Feels like a Cotes du Rhône red.

Would be nice to revisit it in a couple of years.

I paired it with cheeses, nuts and fresh berries.

A very unique blend of Caladoc, Carignan, Argaman, Grenache, Petit Verdot and Syrah. Aged for 8 months. Kosher and not Mevushal.

14% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Yarden Galilee Chardonnay 2021

This wine has a remarkable fruit profile on the nose, with lemon aromas being predominant. The is a slight herbal note along with a very reasonable amount of oak spice. The barrel aging, which was only seven months, comes on most noticeably on the palate, but the wood is used to great effect. — 2 months ago

Domaine du Castel

Grand Vin Red Bordeaux Blend 2017

From a magnum bottle.
The cork was challenging, too dry and crumbled on its way out....
A very powerful nose and a full body, tasty, exceptional balanced wine is experienced.
