been to gallil mountain winery thorough tasting with the head winemaker.
intresting and great wines with amazing vfm.

this is a mid-range level blend i fetched without tasting.

a blend of syrah, barbera, cab and granache.

15% ABV


mostly ripe ๐Ÿ’with added tobbaco and hinted soil๐Ÿ‘ƒ

full body.
high acidity.
medium tannins

silky fruit and some oak influence ๐Ÿ‘„

long ๐ŸŽฏ

quite complex but not balanced. tastes collide. still very drinkble.
pretty pretty good.

ok vfm (59 nis).
alon, a different blend from the same series is the blockbuster.

Very subtle oak, wild raspberry & red cherry notes... Very drinkable & smooth with a complex finish.
