Galil Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Galil

Galil

Uncorked this full-bodied Israeli wine with a filet mignon fondue recently and was pleased with my selection.  This wine is dark ruby in color, rich with ripe cassis, offer a medium finish and shows great legs.

About $15 per bottle.

    Very interesting!

    I have yet to try an Israeli wine… how would you say they compare with Cabs from CA?

      This one was rich and ‘thick’. Compares to some CA cabs, but somewhat less…intense. One thing they don’t have in common with CA cabs is that they are affordable and still pretty great! See other post about another Israeli cab: http://bit.ly/6d0r6c
