Barkan - Altitude +720 2011
Today a lovely Cabernet Sauvignon from Israel on the tasting table.
Barkan - Altitude +720 2011 (88 tsomw points)
In the glass dark red color with garnet reflections.
After some time in the glass it shows intense aromas of black and red fruit with hints of coffee, pepper, licorice and herbs.
On the palate full-bodied with flavours of plums and dark cherries, medium tannins and acidity. Not too yammy with enough freshness and a long and presistence finish.
The name of the wine symbolizes the altitude of the vineyard above sea level.
This wine is grown from a vineyard at an altitude of 720 meters above sea level, in the Godrim Mountains which lies between the Dovav Settlements and the Lebanese border. After a maturation period of 14 months in oak casks, most of which are made from French oak, the wine is bottled without shading.
This wine has the potential to evolve gracefully for a long period time.
