Carmel Limited Edition Bordeaux Blend - Library Wine Collection 2003
The wine consists of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon from the Upper Galilee (Zarit, Ramot Naftali and Schech vineyards), 33% Petit Verdot from the Zichron Yaacov area, 16% Merlot from the Upper Galilee and 1% Cabernet Franc from the Judean Hills. The wine displays a deep purplish hue and is characterized by a hint of ripe plum, cassis, violets and cigar boxes. Full-bodied and rich, with a long and balanced finish. The wine is ready to enjoy, but will continue to mature in the bottle in the coming years. The character of the wine reflects the "old wine" style of winemaking which is expressed in the balance between fruit, tannins and acidity.
