The mountains of the Upper Galilee are among the highest mountains in Israel, rising to heights of over 1,000 meters. The topographical structure, quality of the soil and climate, make the mountains of the Galilee an ideal location for growing vineyards with grapes of the highest quality. Golan Heights Winery had long been aware of the region's premium qualities and consequently began planting vineyards in the Kadesh Valley as early as 1995 jointly with Kibbutz Malkiya and Kibbutz Yiftach. In 1997, the first vineyard was planted in Kibbutz Yiron and at the same time the kibbutz decided to establish a winery amidst the natural landscape surrounding it. Read less

Take into account the price tag for this wine (under $25 in most of the shops I have found it... see Skyview Wines in Riverdale NY for great deals on this and the Yiron Syrah as well), and I would say it is the best all around value for a great, medium to full-bodied, Bordeaux blend with a great range of berry and oak. The finish is terrific, but could stick around a drop longer. The 2005 vintage is drinking beautifully right now, but should age well for another 2-3 years. Salute!
