Winery Notes:
Meet the winner:
The 2005 Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon expresses characters of fresh forest berry and ripe cherry, with a background of blackberry jam, juicy plum, fresh thyme and notes of earth. Delicate hints of spice and oak add to the wine's complexity and balance its rich character.

While enjoyable in its youth, the wine will continue to develop in the bottle, and should remain in good drinking condition for 10-15 years from harvest. The wine goes wonderfully with flavorful beef and lamb dishes, such as a perfectly roasted cut of meat braised in red wine and beef stock with shallots, herbs and a bit of vinegar.
