Yarden Syrah shows off a rich and complex array of characters including ripe cherries and wild berries, layered with notes of earth, chocolate and hints of anise. A background of attractive oak adds the wine's full body and high concentration of flavor.
Yarden Syrah will continue to improve with bottle age and should remain in good condition for up to a decade. We most enjoy Yarden Syrah with intensely flavored foods, such as roast goose or a rich lamb stew. We also like it along with a decadent dark chocolate cake.
|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. The Golan Heights Winery is located in the town of Katzrin, in the central Golan.
