Barkan Assemblage Tzafit 2010

External Review by Skyview Wine and Liquors:

A nice purple hue. Very powerful on the nose, milk chocolate with strawberry and raspberry, a hint of lime, and even a gentle aroma of thyme and fresh oregano. Another swirl reveals hints of roast nuts and hot asphalt. The wine is medium bodied, with a slight hint of wood and a special and pleasant (green hint) of fresh herbs. The wine has a slightly high, but gentle and harmonic, acidity. The tannins are soft and accessible. A slight and very savory bitterness, a finish with leather, a hint of coffee and white pepper, a slight earthiness, and a light, appetizing bitterness. The wine is very elegant, ready to drink. A typical Mediterranean wine, with a south of France accent which is hard to ignore.
