Yatir 2002 Ma’Or Cabernet Sauvignon (review)

90 points

This wine comes from a series of very small vineyards in the southern Judean Hills, south of Beersheba in what was formerly desert. However, the vineyards are planted at elevations of over 700 meters and subject to cooling winds in the afternoons.

The wine is made by an Adelaide trained Israeli in a state of the art small facility jointly owned by several kibbutim (cooperative farms( in the area. They grow cherries and other stone fruit there as well.

The wine is dark and tends to the cherry and plum spectrum. The oak is well handled French oak that matches the strength of the fruit. There is some depth of provencal herbs on the nose and palate.
