Yatir Winery Yatir Creek 2016 Judean Hills, Israel

A pretty color of dark ruby with a nice reddish rim.

Stinky nose of black currants, blueberries, barnyard, vanilla, oak cloves, spices, earth, wet leaves, black pepper, black tea, dark coffee, pencil lead, vegetables and bitter herbs.

Full bodied and elegant with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, oak, licorice, cloves, earth, vegetables, vanilla, spices, coffee, herbs, tobacco leaf and black pepper.

Long finish with fine grained tannins and tangy cherries.

This is a very nice Syrah blend from Israel. Feels like a good quality Chilean Red Blend.

I let it open up for 3 hours, and the stinky nose was still there. As it opens up it becomes tastier, so be patient.

Still young and needs 3 to 5 years in the bottle to mature properly.

An interesting wine to drink and talk about. If you are familiar with their Yatir Forest, this is its baby brother. This has the potential to get to 92+ points in 5 to 7 years.

Good by itself or with food. I paired it with Brie cheese and crackers.

A blend of 76% Syrah, 12% Tannant and 12% Malbec. A very unique blend from this area. Aged for 12 months in oak barrels.

14.5% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

$50.

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.

A Shiraz, Merlot, Cab blend...this wine has a solid body and lots of dark fruit, but is lacking complexity. While good kosher wines tend to be more expensive, at $33 a bottle, I still expect more.
