Rom, Yarden [Golan Heights Winery]

Yarden Rom is a joint undertaking of Zelma Long, the internationally acclaimed winemaker, and Victor Schoenfeld, Head Winemaker of Golan Heights Winery. Starting in 2002, they partnered on a project studying specific vineyard blocks with the objective of continuously improving wine quality. A natural extension of those efforts, Yarden Rom granted Zelma and Victor the opportunity to produce together a finished wine that reflects the quality of both their working relationship and the Golan Heights winegrowing region. The Yarden Rom marks the fifth release of the wine since its debut in 2006.

The Yarden Rom is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Syrah and 20% Merlot, with all fruit harvested from our best vineyards on the Golan Heights. The wine was bottled without filtration after aging for 18 months in French oak barrels.

Tasting Notes

The Yarden Rom features ripe black cherry and plum fruit characters, layered with attractive notes of earth, smoke, orange rind, fresh herb, chocolate, coffee and spice. This complex, flavorful yet elegant blended wine displays a full body and a lingering finish. Though extremely enjoyable upon release, Yarden Rom will continue to improve in the bottle over the next few years, and will remain in outstanding drinking condition for a decade or more from vintage.
