Winemaker Notes

The wine’s color is deep purple, endowed with an aroma of violets, blackberries and a bit of smoked meat. It has concentrated flavor that is reminiscent of ripe black cherries, with a full body and a somewhat astringent finish.

Critical Acclaim

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
Aromas of blackberry, vanilla and violet lead into flavors of black cherry, blueberry, custard, anise and a suggestion of mint. This wine is bright and fruity at first sip, but it stiffens up after a few moments as plush tannins coat the palate. The strawberry finish is marked with a touch of black pepper.

Yatir, Israel
Yatir winery is a small and high quality winery which was founded in 2000 as a joint venture between the grape growers of the area and the Carmel Winery. The winery was built at the foot of the famous Tel Arad archaeological site, which featues ruins of a 3000 year old Canaaninte city and from the later period of Judea. The winery is situated in the north eastern Negev, fulfulling the dream of David Ben-Gurion, Israel's first Prime Minister, of making the desert bloom. However the high altitude, cool climate vineyards of Yatir Forest are only ten minutes away in the southern Judean hills. It is the connection with Judea which encouraged the winery to chose 'The Lion of Judah' as the logo of Yatir Winery. The viticulturists and winemakers of the winery are committed to the highest quality and aim to emphasize the uniqueness of their vineyards through the character and quality of their wines.

With a rich history of wine production dating back to biblical times, Israel is a part of the cradle of wine civilization. Here, wine was commonly used for religious ceremonies as well as for general consumption. During Roman times, it was a popular export, but during Islamic rule around 1300, production was virtually extinguished. The modern era of Israeli winemaking began in the late 19th century with help from Bordeaux’s Rothschild family. Accordingly, most grapes grown in Israel today are made from native French varieties. Indigenous varieties are all but extinct, though oenologists have made recent attempts to rediscover ancient varieties such as Marawi for commercial wine production.

In Israel’s Mediterranean climate, humidity and drought can be problematic, concentrating much of the country’s grape growing in the north near Galilee, Samaria near the coast and at higher elevations in the east. The most successful red varieties are Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah, while the best whites are made from Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Many, though by no means all, Israeli wines are certified Kosher.

Producing full-bodied, rustic and deeply colored reds, Petit Verdot is one of the original Bordeaux varieties. Its bold structure, color and aromatics allow it to make a significant difference in blends with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec and Cabernet Franc—even in modest amounts. While it isn’t planted in Bordeaux in great quantities anymore, it is showing a small revival in well-tended vineyards there. Petit Verdot can also produce phenomenal single-varietal wines in the hotter and drier subregions of Australia, South America, California and Washington State.

In the Glass

Petit Verdot makes an intriguing wine with qualities of blackberry, plum, blueberry or black cherry as well as violets and dried sage. Its thick skins result in a highly structured wine with tannins ranging from smooth to grainy, which take well to oak aging.

Perfect Pairings

Roasted pork or grilled lamb kabobs, as well as barbeque and Mole dishes are wonderful. Hard and salty cheeses such as Pecorino, Manchego or aged cheddar can make fun pairings alongside Petit Verdot.

Sommelier Secret

Petit Verdot finds a happy home also in some regions of Spain and Portugal. It is well regarded in Spain’s Castilla-La Mancha and Catalunya as well as in in Portugal’s Alentejo where it blends well with the regions' indigenous varieties.
