The 2015 Golan Heights Winery Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon features attractive fruit characters of ripe cherries, plums and raspberries, intermingling with complex notes of earth and herb, all with a background of elegant French oak. With pleasantly opulent body and a lingering finish, this is a classic Cabernet Sauvignon. The Yarden Cabernet Sauvignon is made from grapes harvested from a number of our finest Cabernet vineyards in the Golan Heights. The wine aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 40% of which were new.
The Galilee (or Galil) is the most northern, and generally considered the best, appellation in Israel. The highest quality area within the appellation is the Golan Heights (or simply the Golan), the coldest region in Israel. The vineyards on this volcanic plateau rise from 400 meters (1,300 feet) above sea level to 1,200 meters (3,900 feet) and receive snowfall in the winter. Golan Heights Winery is located in the town of Katzrin in the central Golan.
