Galil Mountain, Yiron. Vintage 2009
Size: 750 ml
Region: The higher elevations of the Upper Galilee, part of the Galilee Viticultural area, considered the best winegrowing area in Israel.
Aged for 16 months in small French oak barrels.
Complex and elegant showing a rich black cherry-berry nose balanced with fine notes of dried herbs, vanilla and oak.
"A blend this year of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot and 5% Syrah. Young and vibrant but already showing complexity, depth and elegance. Dark royal purple, with firm but nicely integrating tannins, generous but judicious wood and layers of spicy currant, anise, tar and cedary oak aromas and flavors blending nicely on the long finish. Elegant and deep." (Rogov's Guide to Israeli Wines)
If stored horizontally in a cool, dark place, this wine should age well over 5 - 7 years.
