Yiron is considered as the best value for money of Israeli wines, and this one (2005) definitely the best ever for Yiron (better than the 2003).
I truly believe this is the best Israeli wine in the up to 100 NIS category.
Great wine, excellent value. Best winery in the land
Great wine, although a little pricy for its value
Great wine. Only 2005 tops it.
2003 is the best yiron yet, although the 2005 is promising as well but still a bit tight.

External Reviews for Galil Mountain Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Upper Galilee Yiron Kosher
The higher elevations of the Upper Galilee are considered the best wine growing areas in Israel. This Bordeaux is aged for sixteen months in small French oak barrels. When stored horizontally in a cool, dark place, this wine should age well over 5 - 7 years. Still muscular tannins that need time to subside and integrate an abundance of black currant, cassis, berry fruits, yet well-balanced wood with a long, mouth-filling finish. This deep red, medium to full bodied, wine is an alluring blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot. The aromas & flavors include plum, black cherry, dark chocolate and dried herbs all with a common setting of vanilla & oak.
