White Mt. Amasa Viognier Blend 2017

Woot! First Israeli wine, a lil closer to completing my global wine bingo card.

52% Viognier, 33% Chenin Blanc, 25% Roussanne. 13.5% ABV

Lite crisp and fruity, balanced. Floral and lemony, pleasant, super easy to drink. What makes this wine successful, is the winemakers call to use amphora, neutral barrel, and stainless steel. Nicely done.

Petit Verdot 2017

Deep purplish ruby. Beautiful nose of blue and black fruit. On the palate blueberry, blackberry, a little bell pepper. Medium plus bodied. Maybe a little too young - this will probably benefit from 2-3 years more cellaring. — 2 months ago

Yatir Creek Blend 2015

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.

Tel Arad Red Blend 2012

🏅 Rating: 89/100 (3,9🌟)

Hot climate southern wine in style. Concentrated, dense, rich, heavy full body. Plenty of ripe black fruits, spices: black pepper, game and bit of smoke. Some reminiscent of Northern Rhone.

Syrah dominant blend with little Mourvedre.

High altitude single vineyard Yatir Forest. Aged 12 months in large oak barrels (foudres)

High quality Israel wine, serious wine making. On the edge between Old and New World.

Judean Hills Syrah Blend 2016

This inky wine’s nose is a strong blast of dark fruit, and I do mean dark. There is spice and oak, along with a strong element of forest floor, perhaps that of the Yatir Forest. The palate is fruit forward, dark fruit forward. The Syrah takes the lead, but the Tannat certainly makes itself known. There is a grapey note in the background which reminds me of Lambrusco a bit. The tannins are firm, but not as forceful as I expected.
