Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Wine Spectator: Top 100 Wine of 2020. "Glossy, full tannins encase the brooding layers of dark cherry reduction and steeped currant, infused with sandalwood, anise and mocha details. This has nice elegance despite the power, with black tea and floral notes chiming in on the finish. Kosher. Drink now through 2025" Nov 2020
Winery: "Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon is made from a number of the finest Cabernet vineyards in the Golan Heights. The wine aged in French oak barrels for 18 months. Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits ripe red and black fruit characters layered with hints of earth, spices and French oak. Full-bodied and aromatic, this wine is complex and elegant. Though enjoyable upon release, the Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon will improve significantly with a few more years of bottle aging, and will remain in excellent drinking condition for 10-15 years and beyond. The wine goes wonderfully with full-flavored dishes such as an herb-crusted leg of lamb, pan-seared ribeye steaks, or duck braised in Merlot with shiitake mushrooms."
