Winemaker's Notes:

Here's the deal with this wine...I tasted this blend right out of the barrel in the winery in Zichron Yaacov and fell in love with it.Tamir Ronen is IWD's man in Israel. He's helping to source more great wines and manage export logistics. Here's what he says about this wine! Bikat Hanadiv in Hebrew means "the valley of a generous man". This is the name of the valley where the vineyards of the Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Petit Syrah grapes composing this blend are harvested on the southern slopes of Mt. Carmel. This valley has truly been generous to us, producing grapes for some of the most surprising wines from Israel. The skillful blend of these 3 varieties and the selection and usage of the French oak barrels (Bordeaux & Burgundy Seguin-Moreau barrels) create a highly accessible and enjoyable wine. The smoked vanilla nose and coffee and tobacco hints on the palate integrate well with the soft distinctive fruitiness of this wine. Many of us in Israel claim that the Cab-Merlot blend demonstrates a good example of the Israeli wine making and quality. I believe the addition of the warm and passionate Petit Syrah demonstrates Israeli characteristics even better - this blend benefits not only from that varietal's intense color, but also shows a cheeky twist in the nose and palate.
