Tasting Notes

The Yarden 2T presents an intriguing aroma of ripe berry and cherry, intermingling with notes of flowers, earth, spices and French oak. This blend of two regarded Portuguese varieties is full-bodied and flavorful. Although pleasing to drink now, the Yarden 2T will improve in the bottle and remain in good drinking condition for many years from harvest.
