ADORED THIS $11.95 GRAPEY, MOST APPEALING RED YARDEN WINE 2010 YARDEN ISRAEL MOUNT HERMON RED WINE

My wife and I tried this wine with dinner a few evenings ago and from the get-go we were totally taken back by its oodles of pleasing fruity charming flavors and its dry thirst-quenching fine acid balance. I don’t know what the Hebrew word is for “beguiling”—but if I did I certainly would apply it to this remarkable $11.95 wine whose regular price is circa $15/$16.

The wine comes from the Golan Heights region of Israel (alas bordering the Syrian border) and is a blend of traditional Bordeaux varietals, i.e. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and even Petit Verdot. In spite of its appealing obvious robust fruity charm the wine also has a pleasing smoothness and silky quality resulting in a perfect wine for a tasty lunch or the kind that turns an ordinary supper into the makings of a fun feast.

Now very drinkable the wine should keep well for another 3 or 4 years.
