It's as if Meritage and a Super Tuscan got together in a bottle.

15.5/20 (86/100)

Полный насыщенный аромат чуть зеленоватый, с тонами мака, черных ягод. Достаточно долгий, практически без развития. Хороший вводный уровень

Superb blend of cab sac, cab frank, merlot, petit verdot, and Syrah, well integrated, rich and elegant, medium-full body. 2014.

Kosher for Passover. Decanted for one hour. Wonderful with brisket. Received an extra 1/10 of a point for being KP or it might have been an 8.9

Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, cherries, strawberries, cloves, wood, licorice, earth, light vanilla, smoke, spices, dark coffee and black pepper.

Medium bodied with medium plus acidity and nice legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with cherries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, spices, chocolates, earth, peppercorn and coffee.

Medium plus in finish with round tannins and tangy cranberries.

This Israeli Bordeaux blend is already drinking nicely. Not fully balanced yet, but showing mild complexity and a nice mouthfeel. Spicy with lots of clove notes.

Good by itself or with food, and needs an hour to open up properly and show some tannins.

A blend of 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, 8% Syrah and 6% Petit Verdot. Aged for 10 months in French and American Oak barrels.

I paired it with heavy appetizers.

14% alcohol by volume.

87 Points.

$30.
