The NYC Wine Guys ended 2017 enjoying dinner together the night before New Years Eve with 3 very nice bottles of wine, 2014 Yarden Malbec, 2016 Galil Mountain Sauvignon Blanc, 2016 Galil Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon. We soon came to realize these wines are not your grandmothers Manischewitz kosher wine by any means.
2014 Yarden Malbec
|Aged:||18 months in French oak|
2016 Galil Mountain Sauvignon Blanc
Galil Mountain’s Sauvignon Blanc is from the higher elevations of the Upper Galilee, considered the best winegrowing area in Israel. The wine is aromatic and fresh with distinct citrus, chalk and herb flavors, a firm acidity, and a mouthwatering finish. Great as an aperitif, and a good match for grilled fish, Thai-style stir fries, and a wide range of pasta dishes. Though we prefer red wines, this white was very aromatic and very nice on the nose.
|Blend:||100% Sauvignon Blanc|
2016 Galil Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon
Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from the higher elevations of the Upper Galilee this full-bodied wine has a wonderful concentration of berry and plum notes layered with a hint of herbs. This was our favorite wine of the 3.
|Blend:||100% Cabernet Sauvignon|
|Aged:||12 months in French oak|
