Tabor Adama Cabernet Sauvignon, Galilee, Israel, 2013
Grape / Blend
100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Kfar Tabor,Galilee, Israel
This kosher (non-mevushal) Cabernet Sauvignon plot grew in the Upper Galilee’s Kedesh Valley. This unique area is characterized with stony Terra Rossa soil causing the vine roots to search for stored water deep into the layers of rock contributing to a strong and balanced wine.
This wine was aged for 12 months in French oak barrels and once bottled, an additional year in the winery cellars giving it refinement and complexity.
The wine is a deep dark ruby red with cherry hues and a rich round body. Core flavors of black forest fruit, cassis and blueberries with chocolate, vanilla and coffee are pronounced. Notes of aged wood combined with balanced acidity lead to a long complex finish.
