Wine Review: This ink red colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Israel opens with an inviting dark red fruit bouquet with hints of eucalyptus, cedar and herbs. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, smooth and juicy. The flavor profile is blackberry, plum, and black cherry blend with hints of cooking spice, clove and vanilla oak. The finish is slightly dry with elevated tannins that fade away. I recommend opening this bottle about half an hour or so before serving. Then I would recommend pairing it with a lamb roast. - Joe

Winemaker Notes: The 2016 Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon presents aromas of ripe black and red fruits, along with notes of tobacco, earth and hints of herbs, all with a background of French oak. This classic Cabernet displays full body, concentrated flavor and a sustained finish. Though enjoyable to drink upon release, it should stay in great drinking condition for a decade or more. Pair with a balsamic-glazed filet mignon, Moroccan lamb tagine, or creamy polenta with slow-roasted mushrooms.
