Yatir Winery Forest 2010, Israel
Dark ruby in color with a short purple rim.
Fruity nose of blackberries, sweet cherries, black currants, oak, vanilla, licorice, spices, tobacco, chocolates, eucalyptus, vegetables, pencil lead and peppercorn.
Full-bodied with medium acidity and long legs.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, blueberries, sweet cherries, vanilla, licorice, vegetables, bitter herbs, bell peppers, graphite, spices and peppercorn.
Long finish with fine grained tannins and cranberries.
This 8 year old Israeli red blend is very tasty now. Well balanced with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel. Spicy with lots of earthy notes, yet fruity. A blend of new and old world red.
Good by itself (after 3 hours in a decanter) and good with food too. Would pair very nicely with barbecue lamb.
Needed 2 hours in a decanter to open up, and after that, it still changed every 20 minutes. Very interesting development here, where at the beginning it was fruity yet tart, all the way to fruity with lots of green notes. Would be better in 2 years.
I paired it with with hard cheeses and appetizers.
