Domaine du Castel
La Vie Rouge 2016
Ever tasted a wine from Israel? This one is from the Judean Hills close to Jerusalem.
This wine is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon, (80%) with the addition of 14% Merlot, 4% Syrah and 2% Petit Verdot.
After fermentation and a short period in French oak barrels, the wine ages for a year in concrete tanks. This wine is easy to drink and well made.
