Judean Hills [Cabernet/Syrah/Merlot/PV], Tzora Vineyards

Judean Hills represents the local Terroir of Tzora’s Vineyards in Judean Hills. This wine is made from selected plots of 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Syrah, 25% Merlot, & 25% Petit Verdot, grown on old terraces with top-soil of limestone rich in minerals. The grape must underwent a short period of pre-fermentation cold maceration in order to enhance fruit flavor. Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels, this wine has enhanced dark fruit flavor and hints of minerality and a fairly long finish.

Review:
A serious wine on the nose with dark fruits, smokey bacon and woody notes. On the palate the wine maintains a serious structure but offers really lovely red fruit, sweet and ripe, coupled with a touch of mint and black pepper.
