Winemaker's Notes:

#91 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008

Deep red purple color. Ripe blackberry and plum jam balanced with a dash of bell pepper and fresh soil.

Serving suggestions: Accompany a wide range of beef or lamb dishes, a good lasagna or a selection of savory cheeses.

"Rich and refined, showing focused flavors of red plum, berry and spice, with appealing herbal overtones. Has excellent balance and structure, backed up by crisp acidity. Mineral and smoke notes fill the firm finish. Kosher. Drink now through 2012."

About Golan Heights:

Soil. Topography. Climate. These are the three distinct grape-growing conditions for producing quality wines on an international level. In Israel, such optimal conditions exist in the Golan Heights. Everything in this magical strip of land begins with the right conditions - in the Golan, a combination of volcanic basaltic soil, suitable topography and high altitude resulting in cool climate. This is what gives the Golan Heights its second name: "Wine Country." Over the years, the distinctive wines of the Golan Heights Winery have placed Israel on the world wine map. Since its founding in 1983, the Golan Heights Winery has marketed three leading brands: Yarden, Gamla and Golan. The winery has plaed a significant role in nurturing the country's current wine culture, and has altered the way Israeli wines are perceived worldwide.
