This Friday, for my Cabernet fix I chose a wonderful wine from Israel.

Dark ruby in color with a reddish rim.

On the nose, blackberries, blueberries, plums, cherries, oak, currants, licorice, earth, chocolates, light vanilla and white pepper.

Full bodied with medium plus acidity, smooth and elegant, with great legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with cherries, currants, vanilla, licorice, tobacco, oak, cocoa, cedar, cloves and black pepper.

Long finish with big, full, firm tannins and peppercorn.

This is a great Israeli red wine. Well balanced and smooth with great complexity. Shows power and richness from nose to palate.

Not as good as the 2008 vintage, and needs some more bottle time, but still, one of the best Israeli wines I've had.

These 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes are aged for 36 months in French oak barrels. Only 65,000 bottles were produced annually from this Winery.

This is just delicious.

For my 1000th review, here on Delectable, I choose this awesome Israeli Cabernet to celebrate with you guys.

Gorgeous color of dark ruby in color with a purple rim.

Wonderful nose of cherries, blueberries, blackberries, figs, plums, coke, earth, licorice, tar, chocolates, vanilla and black pepper.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, cherries, vanilla, plums, earth, cranberries, forest floor, dark chocolates, cola, cloves, dry meats and peppercorn.

Full-bodied and round, smooth and elegant with medium acidity and great looking legs.

Long finish with round tannins and black pepper.

An excellent wine. Great by itself or with grilled Meats.

Aged in New French Oak barrels for 36 months. Grapes are hand picked from the Golan Heights Appellation.

Oh, Wow! What a gorgeous Cabernet we have this evening.

Dark ruby in color with a burgundy rim. Really, a gorgeous color.

Beautiful on the nose with blackberries, plums, currants, figs, oak, licorice, eucalyptus, sweet cherries and black pepper.

Medium plus in body with high acidity. Balanced, smooth and elegant with great legs.

Fruity on the palate with some tartness, and cherries, cranberries, black currants, wood, earth, cloves, licorice and peppercorn.

Long finish with round tannins and spices.

What an awesome wine this is. Balanced and complex, smooth and elegant. So enjoyable by itself. It's like eating candy.

100% Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, aged for 36 months in French oak barrels, and then one additional deer in the bottle. The renowned International, wine consultant, Michel Rolland consulted and signed the bottles.

Сладкий концентрированный аромат: ликёр из черных ягод, чернослив в шоколаде. При этом видна усталость, присутствуют заметные тона окисления: красное яблоко, творожно-сырные нюансы (фета). Массивное, неуклюжее тело. Вкус сладкий, много корицы, какао. Хорошие зрелые танины, явный недостаток кислотности. Вино "заряженное на успех". 16-/20
