The 2001 Yarden El Rom Cabernet Sauvignon is “certainly one of the best wines ever made in Israel.” (Rogov) It is well balanced wine with a long and complex finish. Its currant, berry and spice flavors open to earthy and herbal overlays, making it an equisite wine. Drink now-2017. Daniel Rogov, 95.
|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. The Golan Heights Winery is located in the town of Katzrin, in the central Golan.
