Yarden Merlot 2010

Yarden Merlot 750ML 2010       
Sku: 14328

The Yarden Merlot shows great personality, combining ripe berry and cherry notes with jam, spice, chocolate and nuances of orange peel. These characters are highlighted with a background of rich oak and vanilla. This Merlot is full-bodied, complex and delivers a long, tasty finish. Yarden Merlot drinks well now, but will continue to improve with a few years of age. This wine should stay in good shape for up to a decade if stored in good conditions. We enjoy Yarden Merlot with bold flavors such as moussaka, grilled spicy lamb sausages, or a perfectly cooked rack of lamb roasted over a bed of fresh rosemary. Yarden Merlot is made from Merlot grown in the central-northern Golan Heights, mostly from the vineyards Ortal, Yonaton, Allone Habashan and Shaal. The blend also contains a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. Bottling followed months of aging in small, mostly French, oak barrels.

 Ultimate Beverage Challenge 88 points (Jul 2015)
Warm aromas of tree bark, roasted cocoa beans, and berry preserves are nicely intertwined. Ripe blackberries and black cherries ride on top of a mineral core with dusty baking cocoa and coffee flavors underneath. Smooth, structured and full bodied.

The Galilee (or Galil) is the most northern, and generally considered the best, appellation in Israel. The highest quality area within the appellation is the Golan Heights (or simply the Golan), the coldest region in Israel. The vineyards on this volcanic plateau rise from 400 meters (1,300 feet) above sea level to 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) and receive snowfall in the winter. The Golan Heights Winery is located in the town of Katzrin, in the central Golan.
