Tishbi Pinot Noir 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"Pinot Noir is a gentle and elegant variety that combines the aromatic flavors with refinement. This wine carries substantial aromas of ripe berries, cherries, plums and mocha coffee beans which have been exhausted through the French oak barrels. Velvety texture provides a perfect balance between nose and palate. You can enjoy the wine by itself or accompanied by elegant meals." -Winery Non-Mevushal

The Tishbi family's romance with grapes and wine began in 1882 when the present generation's great-grandparents were commissioned by Baron Edmond de Rothschild to plant the first modern wine grape vineyards in Israel. After more than a Century of grape growing tradition, Jonathan Tishbi founded the Tishbi Estate in1984, which produces four series of wines, each offering consistent quality and flavor ,as well as value and style within its class. Set near Zichron Yaacov, at the foot of the Carmel mountain ridge near the coast, the Tishbi Estate is surrounded by its home vineyards which enjoy the cooling breezes of the Mediterranean Sea. The Tishbi family also plants, grows and harvests premium grapes at higher elevations to the North, to take full advantage of the cool mountain night air and the long sunny Mediterranean growing season ,and in the Negev Desert to the South, where hot arid days and cool windy nights combine with sandy soils to yield superior grapes. To this day, proprietor Jonathan Tishbi, together with his family, personally supervises the growing, harvesting and bottling processes, tasting and evaluating each vineyard lot separately before creating final blends and award winning wines, sparkling wines and brandy.

Notes of strawberries and cherries are subtle yet profound here, and a bit of coffee and chocolate come from five months of aging in French oak. This has a velvety texture, perfect balance, and a soft finish.

This wine has everything we love about great Pinot Noir. Dry, yet fruit-forward and approachable, it shows lush, dark raspberries on the palate, and is drinking very well today.
