Gamla Cabernet Sauvignon
3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?
Gamla Cabernet Sauvignon layers ripe berry and bright cherry notes with hints of herbs and black pepper. These characters are nicely balanced with a backbone of rich oak. The wines full and firm body leads into a long, round finish. The wine will continue to improve over the next couple of years and will drink well for 6-8 years, or so. We find that strongly-flavored foods match Gamla Cabernet particularly well, such as spice-rubbed grilled steak, Moroccan lamb tajine or risotto.
This Cabernet blend also contains Merlot and Cabernet Franc to round it out. Most of the fruit comes from the central Golan, the area that consistently produces outstanding reds. Gamla Cabernet Sauvignon ages for a year in small, mostly French, oak barrels.
