Notes from the Winemaker:

The 2015 Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon features attractive fruit characters of ripe cherries, plums and raspberries, intermingling with complex notes of earth and herb, all with a background of elegant French oak. With pleasantly opulent body and a lingering finish, this is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon.

While ready to drink now, the 2015 Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon will improve with a few years of bottle aging, and should remain in outstanding drinking condition for some 10-15 years from harvest. Try pairing the wine with pan-seared strip steaks, grilled rosemary lamb chops, or tofu and wild-mushroom stew.

The Vintage:
Though we had heavy rains in November, the winter saw only 75% of our normal precipitation. Following a cool spring, we headed into harvest 10-14 days later than usual. If in the past a cool spring normally meant a cool summer, this was not the case in 2015. Indeed, we recorded our warmest ever September, including a historic dust storm. We concluded the harvest on schedule, with our vineyards looking surprisingly verdant. Despite the unusual conditions in 2015, the Golan once again proved itself to be a phenomenal place to grow quality wine.

The 2015 Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon is produced from grapes grown in a number of our finest Cabernet vineyards on the Golan Heights. The wine aged in French oak barrels, 40% of which were new, for 18 months.

The Appellation:
The Galilee (or Galil) is the most northern, and generally considered the best, appellation in Israel. The highest quality area within the appellation is the Golan Heights (or simply the Golan), the coldest region in Israel. The vineyards on this volcanic plateau rise from 400 meters (1,300 feet) above sea level to 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) and receive snowfall in the winter. Golan Heights Winery is located in the town of Katzrin in the central Golan.

Ratings & Reviews

91 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"This ruby-colored wine offers a bouquet of cherry and sage. A framework of rich tannins supports flavors of black plum, raspberry, cherry preserves, chocolate and anise that round off in a finish that is equal parts spicy and bright." - Mike DeSimone (4/1/2019)
