Select high-altitude Menara vineyard in Israelís Upper Galilee, 2,500 feet above sea level, is the source of this singular Reserve Merlot.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 87 points (Feb 2010)
The 2007 MERLOT RESERVE is on par with the ’06. There is 10% Cabernet Sauvignon added in, and it spent 16 months in French oak. It is a graceful and elegant wine, more so than its 2006 sibling, I think, despite the time spent in oak. It has a certain ethereal air to it, but not a lot of mid-palate depth. Its finish is average and as with the ’06, there is a green streak particularly obvious early on. Still, it is easy to drink, beautifully balanced and a pleasure to drink. It caresses the palate and seems quite charming. Drink now-2016.

Wine maker notes
After careful hand harvesting, the grapes are de-stemmed and left to soak for two days to fully extract their fruity, spicy character. A small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon is included to enhance depth and complexity. After a fermentation period of two weeks, the wine is transferred to French oak barrels where it matures for 18 months.

Food pairing
An outstanding accompaniment to grilled red meats, poultry, risottos and mushroom-based dishes. Serve slightly cooler than room temperature.
