Dark inky in color with a purple rim.

Strong nose of black plums, black currants, coffee, oak, cloves, alcohol, earth, vegetables, graphite, spices, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Full bodied and smooth with high acidity and great legs.

Dry on the palate and very fruity with blackberries, plums, currants, oak, vanilla, cloves, tobacco, alcohol, espresso, mega purple(?), dark chocolates and peppercorn.

Tart on the finish with firm tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a young Petite Sirah from Israel. Simple, still unbalanced and hot at the back of the throat. Shows a nice mouthfeel with a tangy ending.

Not pleasant right out of the bottle, and needs 90 minutes to open up properly and show some tannins.

Needs a couple of years in the bottle to mature.

15% alcohol by volume.

My first tasting of Petite Sirah.

Definitely benefits from aeration; smell and tasting notes come out when doing so. Tastes of blueberry and fig with an earthly smell.

For My 600th review, this Israeli Petite Syrah will do just fine.

Deep purple in color with a purplish rim. Teeth staining color.

Medium intensity on the nose of sweet blackberries, sweet plums, brandy, licorice, oak, black currants, cedar, tar, black cherries, spices and peppercorn.


Full bodied with medium acidity and long legs.

Fruity on the palate with blackberries, blueberries, plums, figs, cherries, currants, bitter vegetables, wood, licorice, dark chocolate, cola, black pepper and spices.

Medium plus on the finish with full, green tannins and peppercorn.

This young Petite Syrah is great by itself or with a nice steak. Will age in the next 3 years, and smooth out nicely.
Needs an hour to open up properly.

14.5% alcohol by volume.
