Barkan 2010 Reichan, Assemblage Red, Galilee
Here's something totally unexpected. A boutique Bordeaux style blend from a very unique micro-climate. Mount Reichan in Galilee is high altitude wine growing region some 2000+ feet above sea level, with volcanic soils and steep terrain. Galilee is perhaps Israel's most outstanding appellation. The high altitude means ample sunshine but the temperatures drop at night time allowing the grapes to retain good balance and complexity. Also rocky terrain and volcanic soil mean the vine struggle offering lower yields and more concentration. This unique blend is 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 16% Merlot and 12% Shiraz all vinified separately and aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 12 months. Bottled, without fining and with only mild filtration it shows deep color and complex aromas. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored it 92 points and said "Dense and dark, this heady red is a blend of 67% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 13% Syrah. Powerful aromas and flavors of wild blackberry, cassis, cigar-box spice and licorice root abound on the nose and in the mouth, and carry on through the long finish. The structure is firm and gripping, but perfectly matched to the intense fruit flavors. This wine is balanced and attractive now, but (even) greater nuance and complexity should develop with time".

    Comments about Barkan 2010 Reichan, Assemblage Red, Galilee:

    Rustic notes of tobacco, earth and dried out tea leaves are first to emerge on the nose. The blackberry and dark cherry fruits come about shortly after, quite pleasing. There is good structure here, firm tannins with enough acidity to hold it all together. Finishes back to the rustic side, very old world feel all around.

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Game
